One Week (2008)
Michael McGowan wrote and directed a beautiful story that opens with the revelation that our hero has cancer and the movie unravels with the beautiful journey he takes riding across Canada. There are many coming of age movies, but it has been a while since audiences have seen one so moving yet humorous at the same time.
One of the most touching moments is when Joshua Jackson does a dance on the side of the highway in tribute to all those coming of age movies only to discover that perhaps the side of the road is not the best place for those moments.
I can't think of a better person to play the role of Ben Taylor than the marvellous Joshua Jackson. I have followed him through his Dawson Creek years and through the movies and now on Fringe...and I must admit this is my favourite role for him.
Andrew Lockington captures the spirit of the film with his uplifting and sentimental score. Arthur E. Cooper did a splendid job capturing Canada's beauty on film and creating some beautiful shots for Joshua, Liane Balban, and the other cast members.
I applaud everyone for a job well done : )
