Algonquin is yet one more step in the right direction for Canadian cinema. Director, Jonathan Hayes has created a film with the spirit of an independent and the soul of something bigger. It would be easy to pass this off as a father and son story but Algonquin is so much more. This is a story about brothers, about the journeys we make together and the ones we make alone. It’s about what happens when family roots begin to spread out in different directions. It’s about the luck we make and the bad luck made for us. Mostly, this is a story about discovery. Events occur in this film that shouldn’t be revealed in a review or a dust-jacket blurb but discovered as the narrative leads us along a path filled with humour, tragedy and warmth. Algonquin will challenge the way you see Canadian films.
