Storyline

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.

Great Movie
10 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was a great movie that is worth watching many times. It has been many years since I have saw this movie. It still stick out as one of my favourites. If you take the time you will be able to see beyond the screen and see what many actually go though in life. Many are searching for reality and what really counts. Gordon Pinsent play a remarkable role as he always does. His characters always stand out as having something deep that is very important. I have been searching for a copy of this movie for years if you can help it would be very much appreciated. If you have a copy for sale would gladly pay a premium. Please e-mail me if you have a copy for sale even if its taped. Its a shame it is not easily available for this generation would benefit by seeing it.
