Bruce McDonald’s WEIRDOS is a quirky, affectionate coming of age story with some truly great performances. While the title might reference the collective weirdness of the Canadian character in general it mostly applies to the film’s main characters in particular. Despite its wry sense of humour there is something unmistakably warm about WEIRDOS. At its heart, this is a film about perspective, memory and identity, so perhaps it is appropriate that is should also seem so nostalgic. Not that you have to share any particular set of experiences to appreciate it, however, as the expansive and inclusive selection of honorary weirdos credited at film’s end makes clear. Indeed, the more different you are, the better.
