Story of desolation as two friends travel from Nova Scotia to Toronto in hope of finding a better life. Drifting from job to job: bottling plant, car wash, bowling alley, newspaper delivery, and in between enjoying the night life of the big city. Their previous life is looking better all the time. This movie is a time capsule of Toronto's Yonge Street - record stores (defunct A&A's), bars, and old neighbourhood side streets. Written by

Initially, Jayne Eastwood had some misgivings about her brief nude scene. Eastwood was not aware until the day of filming that she had to do one and refused; the very thought of it disgusted her. After coaxing from her co-stars and director Donald Shebib, she agreed, laughing later about her experience: "Then it came to Paul Bradley, who had been razzing me about being such a chicken. I think he left his underwear on or close by, so he could get them back on again. They said 'cut! Okay, Paul, you can put your underwear back on.' And Paul pulled his underwear up so fast it just rolled into a little ball and didn't even cover his private parts!" See more »

It took me 30+ years to find this film (on video) after being on a TOP TEN list in 1970 by a cool critic. I got a clean copy on Ebay that plays out (like FIVE EASY PIECES) as a mood piece of the times, fascinating character study, and overall good film of the BEST year of films overall (1970) with unknown actors.
Find this one. You won't regret it and you don't have to be Canadian or from the Golden 70's. Heartbreakingly realistic but humorous...at the most bleak and surreal moments and MacGrath and the others will smoke and live in real time before your eyes..it's not dated. Donald Shebib (whatever happened to this cool guy?) directed like a young M. Scorsese (with unknowns) that you'll never forget. Find it or you'll never be able to listen to THE DOORS again with a clean conscience.
