Storyline

The story of the "The Fools and Bastards Club," a group of ten close friends who made a pact in high school to reunite every December 31st to ring in the new year together. Eight year later, what started as a simple party has evolved into a sacred tradition which preserves friendships that have otherwise grown apart. However, this year, one of the core members has mysteriously disappeared, leaving the rest to struggle with what has happened. At the center are Penny and William and a secret linked to their friend's disappearance, which could easily tear the group apart for good. Ultimately, they must decide what is more important, keeping the dark truth to themselves or keeping the "The Fools and Bastards" together. Written by The Nightingale Company

Memorable film - great directing, acting and music. I look for more from this director.
6 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Beautiful photography, well composed shots. Interesting characters - no clichés here. The story of long-time friends dealing with the disappearance of one of the group. The intrigue of what went wrong.

My favorite characters were 1. the "bad boy' who did everything to alienate everyone else. He also described the missing one as his best friend. And 2. the newcomer to the group which over the years would not allow anyone new. This one slipped in because his sister was not coming and he lost a bet to her. Younger, idealistic he is a good counterbalance to the older, more jaded characters.

This is really quite a remarkable movie. Many who see it say they are still thinking about it the next day. It comes to my mind often. Highly recommend it.
