Different and Weird (Film Thoughts: Weirdos)

p13266699_v_v8_aaThere is something very sweet and innocent in Bruce Mcdonald’s ‘Weirdos,’ a Canadian film about two teenagers who find themselves on a road trip. But I feel like I have seen this all before, and perhaps better. There are a couple of good performances here, mos notably Molly Parker as the mom of a confused gay teen, and I really appreciated the retro black and white cinematography that frames a nostalgic 70s mood here, but I felt underwhelmed by a lot of it.
