weirdos
5 April 2017 | by theta30See all my reviews

+++Despite the title, the protagonists are not so much weirdos, just average teens and this is recognized in the movie-everyone is a weirdo in his own way. We have here a simple nice story that I bet it is not much different than what could have happened today-but for a reason that you realize after you see the movie it had to be set in 1976. Also, despite the story line, there is no politics involved, only a drop. It is a story about coming of age and responsibilities of parents. The movie is shot black and white which seems suitable and there is a nice 70s rock music line. Actors play very well (with a mention to Julia Stone aka Alice). I thought Kit's mother played overzelously, but later in the movie it is revealed why she had to play that way. --- As a Canadian touch point, there is a foreign element-an Asian man that is in a relationship with Kit's mother; in turn that seems odd because these adults have very different personalities. I wished there were more background revealed about the parents.
