Greer proves a resourceful comedienne, as usual, and a colorful array of supporting characters are nicely turned.”  -Dennis Harvey, Variety

The endearingly awkward hero of this immensely engaging comedy by B.C.’s Kyle Rideout, Liam (Daniel Doheny) may be a teenager but he doesn’t know anything about surviving high school. Having been homeschooled by his well-intentioned if somewhat misguided mom Claire (the great American comedic actress Judy Greer), Liam is understandably inept when he must spend the last part of his secondary education among others his age. Packed with a terrific cast that also includes Russell Peters and Hawaii Five-O’s Grace Park, Rideout’s feature is an offbeat coming-of-age comedy that has as much to say about the foibles of the adults in Liam’s world as it does about the youngsters.
