I Like Movies, Chandler Levack
Lawrence Kweller is a socially inept 17-year-old cinephile living in the wilds of early-2000s Burlington, Ontario. He’s the kind of guy who, when he buys a movie ticket, mentions the director’s name just to show that he’s there for the right reasons. He dreams of NYU, where he’ll be mentored by a grateful Todd Solondz. But for Lawrence this isn’t a mere dream, it’s locked in, as long as he can make thousands of dollars working part-time at his local video store, Sequels, to afford tuition.
