Storyline

Part 'The Wizard of Oz', part 'Eyes Wide Shut', EXPIRATION stares straight into the dreams and nightmares of childhood, leading both character and audience deep into the heart of an unflinching urban fairy tale. Set amidst the chaotic, yet seemingly predestined events of a fall Montreal night, this coming of age odyssey from newcomer Gavin Heffernan follows three lost characters through a circus of tests, trials and colorful figures. As their futures materialize, realization dawns that every step of their journey has been leading to a single moment, high above the city... Written by WB

Gavin Heffernan is the Real Deal
9 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Had the pleasure of meeting many talented directors and filmmakers out

at the Victoria film fest 2004 (best fest ever), and I have to say to

the world, this 23-year-old-kid is the Real Deal.

I've been in film for many years and I was just blown away by his

feature debut from a creative, technical and poetic point of view.

American Beauty meets After Hours with loads of unexpected thrills

(let's just say I'll never play roulette again) and grace (especially

between the 2 leads). Go out and find this movie and watch it. If you're

a studio head out there - give this guy a deal. Good stuff Gavin.
