StorylineA comedic adventure that re-imagines Mark Twain's iconic literary characters of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as grown men in current day. Petty criminal Huck Finn hopes to leave his criminal life behind when he is released from a stint in prison, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies of wealth and adventure, Tom forms the "Band of Robbers," recruiting their misfit friends Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences..
I want to keep this brief because this movie should just be seen and experienced.
The performances are great from the entire cast, especially from co- writer and co-director Adam Nee as Tom Sawyer. The story is original,funny and unexpected while still playing homage to the classic tale in its own way.
The movie is shot beautifully and with style. Using bright colours and interesting props to really hold the tone.
I was lucky enough to catch this at CIFF and I'm excited to get a second viewing whenever it gets distribution.
