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

YOU CAN'T STOP WATCHING TO SEE WHAT IS COMING NEXT.
5 December 2003 | by miketsar1See all my reviews

This film is pure genius. for the budget that Gavin had to make this film, I could imagine what would happen if we gave this kid some money.It totaly blew away all the big budget films that I have seen this year. The girl that plays Rachel the Lead, JANET LANE , WOW, what a talent. smart ,sexy and a great actress to boot , this girl will be holding a golden statue within the next two years.I would compare Janet Lane to Gweneth Paltrow or even Meryl Streep. Congratulations Gavin on doing what most of Holly wood could not,MAKE A MOVIE WORTH WATCHING.
