Kamloops Film Festival: Mountain Men
March 11, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
Directed by Cameron Labine
When Cooper, a big city lawyer, returns home to a small northern town for his mother’s wedding, he plans to be in and out without a scratch. But his deadbeat brother, Toph, has other ideas. He coerces Coop into driving to the remote alpine cabin where they spent their childhood summers to look for their father who has gone missing. Their sketchy plan goes from bad to worse, as bruised egos and buried resentments bubble to the surface. Cars explode, cabins burn, pot cookies are consumed, and when the smoke clears, the brothers f ind themselves stranded in the harsh Rocky Mountain winter, fighting for both their relationship and their lives.
“a movie that brilliantly mixes comedy and drama in unexpected ways.” “There’s plenty of man vs. nature but Mountain Men is particularly memorable for its mix of comedy and drama.” “hugely enjoyable” – Quiet Earth [Marina Antunes]
“It’s about changing definitions of manhood and manliness. It’s about manhood and what that means,” It’s about family – it’s about surviving family. It’s about finding your place in this landscape that we all live in – a majestic, beautiful landscape and what it all means to us.” -Cam Labine, Director
