Synopsis

Will Morrison (LUKAS HAAS) and Daniel Bloom (ADAM SCOTT) were the best of friends. They grew up together. Went to the same schools. Liked the same records. Loved the same girls. Daniel was Will’s best man at his wedding to Maggie Claire (MOLLY PARKER). Then one day Will disappeared without a word. Half a decade later he re-surfaces and sets off a tsunami of unforeseeable events.

Shot against the gorgeous backdrop of the Canadian Shield, WHO LOVES THE SUN is a thoughtful, evocative portrayal of friendship, love, longing and the sometimes static nature of life. Evoking iconic American filmmakers such as Hal Hartley, director Matthew Bissonnette’s impressive second feature, nominated for the AFI Grand Jury Prize, is able to render an emotional tale of three friends who struggle to find meaning in their lives. WHO LOVES THE SUN features perfectly pitched performances, a great soundtrack from Portastatic, songs from the Silver Jews, and some hilariously realistic bad fighting.
