Canada, English, 89 mins

  • Director: Bruce McDonald
  • Writer: Daniel MacIvor
  • Producer: Marc Almon; Mike MacMillan

CGiii Comment

Weirdos is a journey...of mind, body and spirit. The spirit being Andy Warhol - no less!

Quirky, indeed it is...but, not too quirky.

Composed...beautifully so, in visual and in pace.

At the Q&A, Mr McDonald exuded warmth...explaining that budget restrictions dictated the film to be shot in black & white...praise be to 'budget restrictions' [wow, that's a first!] because...Weirdos looks [beautifully] and feels [nostalgically] like the 70s.

The understated, perfectly structured final scene merited an audible 'Aaaaw' from the audience - deservedly so.

It really is a lovely, lovely, positve film...about how to recall a beautiful memory.

Yes, indeed, we are all weirdos.

The(ir) Blurb...

Canadian master Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments) teams with veteran playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor for this offbeat coming-of-age comedy-drama, about two Nova Scotian teens who hit the road in July 1976 accompanied by the laconic ghost of (the still-living) Andy Warhol.
