Movie Info

Nova Scotia. 1976. The weekend of the American Bicentennial. 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authors) is running away from home to move in with his estranged mother and, hopefully, to find himself. With the help of his girlfriend Alice (Julia Sarah Stone), Kit hitchhikes through the stunning maritime landscape towards the home of his glamorous, artistic mother Laura (Molly Parker). But as the kids near their final destination, the truth about their relationship and their identities begins to unfold. Stunningly shot in black and white and enhanced with a killer '70s soundtrack, Bruce McDonald laces this charming coming-of-age road-movie with a welcome air of nostalgia and a touch of enchanted realism.

Critic Reviews for Weirdos

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5)

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.
