Trivia

Bruce McDonald asked Daniel MacIvor to write a My Dinner with Andre-style screenplay that would be a sequel to Hard Core Logo, with Hugh Dillon and Callum Keith Rennie playing the roles. However, scheduling (among other reasons) kept it from moving forward. After some discussion, McDonald and MacIvor decided to rewrite the screenplay for two women, with Molly Parker and Tracy Wright in mind. Rennie now has a cameo in the film. See more »

Quotes

Vic: This is love: I secretly believe that I'm unlovable, and then I meet you. You tell me that you love me. I love you because you love me, but that has nothing to do with you; it's about you loving me. I only love you because I imagine myself unlovable, and you, against all odds, love me.

If you watch it, the performance was worth catching
16 May 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

5/15/18. 83 minutes was just about the right length to watch this extremely emotionally difficult movie of two women trying to reconnect on an emotional level. One is never sure what kind of a relationship they had before this movie takes place, except maybe it was intense and drug-addled. As they bicker at each other for most of the movie you get a glimpse of what probably kept them together. As they get up on stage and gave an impromptu performance in the present, you can feel the electricity between them that all but dissipated once they got off the stage. The performance was probably the only thing worth watching.
