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

Great movie
22 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Firstly, in the leading half hour I felt like I was watching a student film with some semi-amateur lighting and a bit uneasy cutting, but after the first half hour of setting up the characters the style of editing and jump cuts really suited the film. More then anything the dialogue was amazing, very witty and the delivery was quite realistic. The way the friends sat together and the film intercut between each group of two friends in different areas of the same house was very smart and the fun dialogue really redeemed the film after what i found to be a bit of a weak opening.

This is a great independent film and I wish Canada made more films like this (or more films in general). I work in the film industry and the problem is that Canadian producers don't take enough chances on films. Come on, let's make some good movies, we do have talent and as you can see we have more and more good actors coming out of country that we should be using in our films as well...
