Moon Point is now available on DVD & digital download! Below is a sneak peak of one of the many extras on DVD release.
If the bloopers aren’t enough of a reason for you to pick up a copy of the movie, then read our review below:
It’s always refreshing to see a local Canadian Indie film hit the big screen. Moon Point is an adorable story about a 24-year-old kid that goes on a crazy journey for a girl he had a crush on as a kid. Although it may be another typical coming-of-age story with long hours with some other crazy cats on the way, it had an authenticity that was very Canadian and hopefully can be appreciated by its fellow peers.
Darryl Strozka (Nick McKinlay) is your typical obnoxious not-so-young teen that still lives at home and resents the whole get a job, a girl and a house thing because it’s ‘conformist.’ He even goes so far to give a lesson on metaphysics with reference to Aristotle in his description of the perfect ‘girl’ Sarah Cherry (Kristen Gutoskie). Don’t worry, the pretentious nonsense doesn’t last forever.
More of the fun actually occurs on the road trip held in a wagon behind Darryl’s best friend Femur (Kyle Mac) that totally souped up his wheelchair to travel an undefinied amount of miles just to stalk a hometown local celebrity on her debut film. Besides his deliriously electric good looks, his chemistry with Degrassi girl Kristin (Paula Brancati) is so addictive you just want Darryl to get out of the picture so they can finally wash out that sexual tension flooding the screen.
There’s a lot of crazy that happens throughout the movie that doesn’t exactly need to be there. But I guess Moon Point is trying to suggest that there are some mysteries in life that tie you together to some things rather than others.
