A Simple Curve
Canada, 2005, 92 min., drama
“By turns hilarious and sweet.” —Canadian Press
Kris Lemche gives a stellar performance as Caleb, a charming small-town entrepreneur. Determined to keep his woodworking shop afloat in spite of the relentless idealism of his business partner and father, Jim (Michael Hogan), an aging hippie draftdodger, Caleb juggles mounting debts, freeloading neo-hippie houseguests (including former Sunshine Coast resident Sarah Lind), and a budding love life. The setting (B.C.’s Slocan Valley) and cinematography are, well, awesome!
“As richly written and directed as it is photographed and acted, A Simple Curve is anything but a facile look at the father-son relationship or the end of the hippie dream. It is rooted in Nealon’s own back-to-the-earth upbringing, and the conversations and issues in the script are in his experiences…. It has an abundance of gentle humour…and possesses wisdom that is rare for film these days, let alone a debut.” — The Toronto Star.
One of TIFF's Canada's Top Ten 2005.
