I Like Movies

MKE Film Festival

Burlington, Ontario, 2003. Hyper-ambitious teenage cinephile Lawrence Kweller dreams of attending film school at NYU. To raise the hefty tuition fee, he gets his dream job at the local video store, Sequels. "Imagine if SUPERBAD were directed by a woman who didn't allow the toxic masculinity and misogyny to go unchecked while giving her genuinely funny and moving characters the room for growth and empathy. I LIKE MOVIES does that." (CTV's Your Morning)
