I Like Movies
July 14 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Feature Narrative/2022/Canada/99min/Directed by Chandler Levack
It’s easy to see why I Like Movies has garnered universally great reviews and multiple awards in telling the story of hopelessly ambitious small-town cinephile seventeen-year-old Lawrence Kweller (a fantastic performance from Isaiah Lehtinen) who lives with his mother (Krista Bridges) in a one-room house but dreams of film school.
Director and writer Chandler Levack’s debut is a well-made exploration not just of growing up wanting to make movies, but of being an outsider in a small community, of youthful friendships and of family, and the journeys we all take.
Packing a surprising emotional power, Levack’s debut features signpost her as a talent to watch.
“It is just a perfectly executed piece of art from writer-director Chandler Levack.” Andy Howell, Film Threat
