Will Cole is a charismatic 35 year old paper mill laborer who seems to celebrate a life of bad choices. He lives and behaves as if he was still 18, womanizing and drinking and rejecting responsibility because he sees no reason to take life seriously. Surprisingly enough, despite his devil-may-care attitude, he has several important people in his life. He maintains a special relationship with Stan, an old mentor who lives in a nursing home, and Ruth, the only woman he truly cares about. Andrew is his best friend but grows tired of Will's antics, and he is soon to be married and moving on. Will constantly has something up his sleeve but his pranks inevitably bring pain and tragedy to those closest to him, forcing him to reevaluate his life and make some difficult decisions. Written by
I remember the night I saw The Rowdyman clearly, I was at the rink playing hockey with my friends and my older sister came and got me because we had to go see some stupid movie from Newfoundland(my dad was from Corner Brook). So I begrudgingly went to the theater with my family, and The Rowdyman isn't really a I think my life changed that night, I'm glad my parents dragged me out. I had never seen anything like it (at twelve years old). To me this was a very real reflection on how screwed up people can be, I left the theater a smile on my face and a few good lines memorized. I would highly recommend this down to earth movie.
