Gregoire

Sea to Sky | BC Spotlight

Shot in his hometown of Fort McMurray before it was ravaged by wildfires, writer-director Cody Bown’s drama draws on real-life events to capture snapshots of a community teetering on a precipice and a collection of twentysomethings whose seemingly directionless lives have intersected. Brothers Felix (Jared Abrahamson) and Louis (Jedidiah Goodacre) devise heists that net them little more than pocket change. And yet, that practically makes them ambitious when compared with their peers (Morgan Taylor Campbell and Emily Haine), who fail spectacularly in holding down retail jobs, and a marginally elder statesman (Ben Cotton), who makes more money than he knows what to do with but longs for simpler times when he egged houses and stirred up trouble.

Drawing remarkably naturalistic performances from his ensemble cast, Bown deftly crafts a portrait of perpetually wasted youth locked in a holding pattern that that sees them still choking down Pop Rocks, finding light entertainment in senseless violence and indulging in idiocy because there seems to be no other option. Blessed with a tremendous specificity and sense of place, Gregoire will resonate with anyone who’s reached that stage in life where there’s no other option than making a life-changing decision.
