More a short story than a novel in terms of cumulative heft, Weirdos nonetheless benefits from the literary virtues of revealing character through a seemingly casual, anecdotal narrative.
The young leads are charming and authentic, and the film reminds us all to embrace our own weirdness.
Weirdos is a coming-of-age story, for a country. McDonald waves a freak flag. It has a leaf.
Weirdos is one of Bruce McDonald's sweetest films.
A lovely, low-key memory piece, vibrant with the awkward grace of adolescence.
Landing somewhere between his brilliant character study Trigger and the frustrating, if not beautiful and heartbreaking This Movie is Broken, Weirdos is an endearing throwback to the moment where good kids engage in this kind of behavior.
... the sensitive part of a world of fiction that floods us with certainties and the nostalgia of black and white on screen. [Full review in Spanish]
It's nice that this latest work by a filmmaker who has sometimes chased hipness past its expiration date concludes on a note of deliberate, intergenerational non-cool.
Kit may define himself as a weirdo, but this nostalgic, simple road trip is anything but.
It's ultimately Stone who walks away with the picture. Adding an impatient clarity to the old-soul watchfulness she displayed in Wet Bum, she slowly becomes Weirdos' moral centre. And it's something to see.
Affectionate and heartfelt, Bruce McDonald's coming of age story is all about the beauty to be found in the shades of grey.
Laced with sweetness of the melancholy kind, the film is much more effective and far less generic than might initially appear.
