A funny, heart-warming drama about a self-obsessed film fan and video store employee who forms an unlikely friendship with his boss. It’s Napoleon Dynamite meets Clerks in this quirky indie comedy.
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).
