The coming-of-age flick gets a thoroughly Canadian spin in this immensely likeable comedy by director Stephen J. Campanelli, who was last at the festival with INDIAN HORSE (KCFF18). Daniel Doheny – a rising star who festival audiences may remember from ADVENTURES IN PUBLIC SCHOOL (KCFF18) – plays Mike Drinkwater, a teenager who has enough to cope with growing up in Penticton, B.C. without having to deal with his father Hank (Will & Grace’s Eric McCormack), a guy who’s more interested in his petty fraud schemes than the trickier matter of parenting. The winner of audience awards at the Calgary and Whistler film festivals, Campanelli’s big-hearted movie has been delighting viewers with its big-hearted take on high-school hell and the complications that come with charting your own path.


Please note: Tickets to the in-person event are sold directly through The Screening Room. KCFF digital passes cannot be used toward in-person tickets. *We will be playing the same film on all three screens but have intentionally staggered the start times by 15 minutes in each to ensure plenty of room for distancing when patrons are entering/exiting the cinema. Please check your ticket for the exact screen and start time.
