We Were Wolves
Brothers Nick and Danny work through both their deceased father’s possessions and their own issues in the scenic Kawartha Lakes in a solid feature debut from director Jordan Canning
Estranged for years and with very different memories of their father and their childhood, particularly summers at the cottage they’re cleaning out, Nick and Danny (Peter Mooney and Steve Cochrane) bicker, battle, and booze their way through a weekend, meeting fellow cottager Kathleen along the way. She has her own connections to Nick and Danny’s family, and her presence helps more secrets and stories come out.
It’s a familiar story of people who are messed up already and make more mistakes along their way to a cathartic battle that helps them accept their faults and realise that they’ll be okay. Interspersed with shots of the beautiful Kawartha Lakes region, it’s a well composed film that doesn’t tread much new ground, but still tells a thoughtful story. (Jenna Hossack)
