A painter struggling for inspiration finds an unexpected muse after he accepts a teaching position in a small town and becomes the caregiver to Eddie, a seemingly docile art student with a rare sleepwalking condition.
Bruno wakes up in bed next to Caroline, his long time crush. But tomorrow she's off for school in France, and maybe she only granted this miracle as a parting gift for her long time friend. So tonight is Bruno's last chance. And tonight, as it happens, Broken Social Scene, her favourite band, is throwing a big outdoor bash. Maybe if Bruno, with the help of his best pal Blake, can score tickets and give Caroline a night to remember, he can keep this miracle alive. Written by
I really did enjoy this movie, however, I tried to watch it with the perspective of someone who doesn't like/know BSS. I must say it's not a movie for everyone. There's a cheesy story and it's blended along with a concert. It's fun to see how the band acts on stage, and the emphasis isn't just put on one member, but on all of them. The movie itself is almost like a semi-rockumentary since it depicts the atmosphere of the city of Toronto at Harbourfront in the summer. It's hard to tell if the focus is on the band or the story, but it was a great movie anyways. It wasn't meant to be a blockbuster or the critics' choice of the year, it's just about friendship and fun. Don't expect it to have a fantastic storyline and splendid acting, because you will be disappointed.
