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
Intelligent script, original story, outstanding acting
Gordon Pinsent, one of Canada's best actors ever, portrays a womanizing drunk who refuses to grow. Is he a hero refusing to adjust to the norms of society (even the very liberal society of a small Canadian town) or a man arrested in development. Either way, his antics are hysterical, and the movie leaves the conclusions to the viewer. If you love original, daring story telling, show casing unknown but great talent (even the songs are original and GREAT), then you should check this out.
OK even if you just want a good laugh you should check this out.
