I saw this in Austin (SXSW) a few years ago, and saw it again recently on TV. I thought this film was great. Funny in a very subtle way with unique watchable characters. The writing was fresh and its formal style was reminiscent of Wenders' Paris, Texas, another place-name film. This film definitely has a transcendental quality. I've never been to Red Deer, let alone Canada, but this film was more about the universality of theme rather than a specific place. The characters' feeling of entrapment in this characterless place is something that people could relate to the world over. Loved Sara's character...why haven't we seen more of her? Would like to see what Couture does next.
