L.A. Tea Time

True North | True North

Enduring the bleakness of another Montreal winter, filmmaker Sophie Bédard Marcotte writes an email to her idol, Miranda July, with the hope of setting up a meeting in Los Angeles. Soon growing tired of waiting for a reply, Sophie and her director of photography set off for California. During the course of their travels, unexpected encounters with colourful characters and inspirational forays across unfamiliar landscapes instil Sophie with a renewed sense of purpose.

Frequently hilarious (and never more so than when the travel companions feign listening to a Robyn track in order to avoid paying royalties), Bédard Marcotte’s second feature brilliantly melds all the beauty and self-reflection of a road movie with an inventiveness that’s rarely seen or heard (or, in this case, not heard) in a travelogue. A soulful experience taking us through the back stretches of America and using the screen as a canvas for striking cinematography, this is cinéma vérité with both meditative and whimsical twists. Expect the unexpected, let yourself go, and drift in and out of states of consciousness as you tag along on a memorable, insightful journey.
