Canada's Top Ten Official Selection TIFF 2022

Burlington, Ontario, 2003. Hyper-ambitious teenage cinephile Lawrence Kweller (Isaiah Lehtinen) dreams of attending film school at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In order to raise the hefty tuition fee, he gets his dream job at the local video store, Sequels. Wracked with anxiety about his future, Lawrence begins alienating the most important people in his life – his best friend Matt Macarchuck (Percy Hynes White), his single mother Terri (Krista Bridges) – all while developing a complicated friendship with his older female manager, Alana (Romina D’Ugo). As graduation looms ever closer, a series of painful realizations force Lawrence to realize that he is a pretentious asshole.

"Bursting with personality, a funny, smart stroll down millennial memory lane." - Slash Film

"Backed by strong writing and even stronger performances, the result is a film that is small, sweet, and the kind of thing that can make even a cynical critic like movies again." - Indiewire
