When Sutherland witnesses the murder, it can be clearly seen, though in shadow, that the murder weapon is a revolver. Later however, when Sutherland is shown the murder weapon in the police station, the weapon is a semi-automatic, and not a revolver. See more »
This is a thoroughly well-made Canadian movie, with an unusually high number of memorable scenes, thanks to a well-written script and solid acting from all involved. And although a coming-of-age drama with many emotional scenes, there are well-placed lighthearted moments that help to keep the movie from getting too "heavy". All-in-all, it's a real success, and is yet another example of a lesser known movie that outshines most of the box office blockbusters.
