Nominated for achievement in Production Design by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television
Just after the end of the Vietnam War and in the midst of the American bicentennial celebrations of 1976, runaway Kit and his girlfriend Alice hitchhike their way along the east coast of Canada.
“Abetted by outstanding costume and production design and period-appropriate pop-rock on the soundtrack (Harry Nilsson, Edward Bear, Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray), he perfectly balances nostalgia and in-the-moment drama. Weirdos is quietly alive with the sensuous detail of the road, the thrill of dislocation and the unknown territory of that once-in-a-lifetime cusp, being 15.”
