Carl Bessai, 2009, 95 min, PG
Cole Chambers (Richard de Klerk) is an aspiring writer living in the small British Columbia town of Lytton. Hoping to gain experience as a writer, he enrols in a writing course at a university in the city, a three-hour drive each way. In class he meets Serafina (Kandyse McClure), a black woman who lives with her wealthy and controlling parents. Attracted to the possibility of escape that the other offers, Cole and Serafina start an affair few close to them understand. Expanding on familiar themes like identity, Bessai uses the film's out-of-town setting to explore how place and race influence our sense of self.
