Storyline

Brian and Jack were inseparable; now they barely speak. Their formerly close-knit group has all but disbanded in the wake of encroaching adulthood. But when Jack tries to hang himself from a plant hook while house-sitting, he inadvertently triggers an impromptu reunion that brings the old gang back together and could change everything. Forever. Welcome to DAKOTA: friendship, fistfights, concussions, quarter-life crises, blow-ups, breakdowns, toy guns, telemarketing, love, lies, and breakfast - all in someone else's home. In this dark, offbeat comedy everyone comes together to examine what went wrong. Along the way, they may just remind each other what went right. Written by Brendan Gall

Gets better the more times you watch it.
24 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I great movies with real characters, best friends last forever. It has to be watched at least twice to be fully appreciated. Jack is a savvy character that has gone though a rough couple of years. He lost he best friend to a job in Vancouver and soon realizes that lye's run deep. Death, love and friendship play a huge roll in this movie that envelopes you with its quirky style. Each character is uniquely different and everyone who watches this movie will have at least one trait to represent with. It is filmed in a backwards style hence at least watching it twice is a must. It is at first confusing because the audience is not given details of the characters lives but rather has to figure them out as the movie progresses.

Enjoy, I did...
