It is May 1988 in Toronto. The school year is coming to a close. The Victoria Day long weekend heralds the beginning of summer. In Boston, Wayne Gretzky's dynastic Edmonton Oilers are playing in the Stanley Cup Finals. Best of all, Bob Dylan is coming to town. Ben Spektor, 16, attends the concert with his two closest friends, Sammy and Noah. Though the year is 1988, they exist as if in a time warp, idolizing the music and culture of the 1960s. Outside the concert, Ben sees what looks like a routine exchange: two teenagers buying drugs. In a way he could never have predicted, the consequences of this drug deal will alter the course of his summer and, quite possibly, the rest of his life.

Enjoyable, low budget, Canadian film. Well acted coming of age film dealing with a teenager's first love, family pressures and a tragedy.

No, a waste of time. There was no ending.

I really, REALLY enjoyed this movie and I don't know why. Probably in part because it takes place in Toronto in 1988 so there was a familiarity to it.
