Rhinoceros Eyes is a fantastical coming-of-age story revolving around Chep, a young, reclusive prop-house employee who falls in love with a detail-obsessed movie production designer named Fran. Fran's need for authentic props sends Chep to great and questionable lengths as he tries to satisfy her requests, and ultimately... win her heart. Written by
Rhinoceros Eyes is stunningly original and beyond creative. I found it hilarious, frightening and breathtakingly beautiful all at once. Aaron Woodley is a rare Canadian talent who has a voice of his own and is not afraid of taking chances. It was one of my favourite films of the Toronto International Film Festival -- the Discovery Award was truly deserved! If you ever get a chance to see this film, you will not be disappointed.
