Storyline

A young junior hockey player's life is shattered by an in-game act of violence. In an instant his life is abruptly turned upside down; torn from the fraternity of the team and the coinciding position of prominence, he is cast as a pariah and ostracized from the community. As he struggles with the repercussions of the event, desperate to find a means of reconciliation and a sense of identity, his personal journey ends up illuminating troubling systemic issues around violence.

So, so, sooo bad....
19 March 2018 | by jay-79601See all my reviews

How this movie got nominated for anything is absolutely beyond me. This was the most aggravating film I have ever seen, half the movie was (unnecessarily) silent. And yes, I get the whole "dark, depressed" theme but this had the potential to be so much more. The character grows on you and you empathize with him as the film progresses but this thing just had no direction from the start. If this was nominated for anything that speaks volumes of the standards of Canada's film industry.
