SF INDIE FEST: West of Pluto
Henry Bernadet, Myriam Verreault 2009
PicturesRun time: 95 min. | Canada
Like Gus Van Sant’s Paranoid Park (IndieFest ’08), West of Pluto inhabits the world of suburban teens, who reveal their inner lives in small, nuanced moments. A marriage of hyperrealism and dreamscape, the film is a mix of improvised and scripted dialogue that reverberates with emotional honesty and a sense of realism. Shot in suburban Quebec, the teens start garage bands, give class presentations, fall in and out of love, throw parties that spiral out of control, and lose their virginity—quintessential experiences on the way to adulthood.
