My American Cousin

We're taking part in National Canadian Film Day 150, the world's largest film festival celebrating Canadian film in our sesquicentennial year!

My American Cousin is one of Canada's all time favourite films, a true classic of Canadian cinema and a multi award-winner. In 1950s British Columbia, 12-year-old Sandy Wilcox (Margaret Langrick) longs for adventure. When her older American cousin Butch (John Wildman) arrives unexpectedly for a visit, he introduces the impressionable pre-teen to rock & roll, and expands her horizons in this touching and unforgettable coming of age story.

Writer/Director Sandy Wilson will be here to present the screening.
