It’s a story I think we can all relate to. Someone who isn’t over their ex.
Shot in Winnipeg, Lovesick tells the story of a man in his 30s who is obsessed with his former long-time lover even though she’s engaged to a new man. Even after meeting a new woman, he’s still got to come to terms with his feelings for his former flame before he can move on… and before the new woman gets fed up with his hang up.
Written and directed by Tyson Caron, the film stars Jacob Tierney, Jessica Pare (you probably know her from Mad Men), Jay Baruchel and Ali Tataryn among others. It was shot in Winnipeg in two blocks, September 2015 and January 2016 and was released late last year. It was recently featured at the Whistler Film Festival.
Check out the trailer below, you will definitely recognize some of the places (Look, The Ledge!) and maybe even see a few faces you know (Oh hey DW!).
There’s one last screening this weekend, Sunday night at 7 and a few more next week at Cinematheque for $10.
