I wasn't sure what to expect, and I was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of this film. The acting, scenery, score (I'm a big Paperboys fan(Finnegan's Take in the movie) and storyline were fresh and real. It was refreshing to see Vancouver being portrayed as Vancouver, for once - not a front for a Pacific Northwestern State like so many other movies, and the "inside" Vancouver jokes had most of the audience laughing out loud. I recommend this film to anyone who lives in the Vancouver area and/or anyone who needs to sit back, relax and become whimsical and hopeful, despite all the bumps along the road of life.
