» Shelburne-shot film to premier locally

published on February 23, 2005

"Wilby Wonderful" is a dark comedy about truth, transformation and the difficulty of finding a quiet place to kill oneself.

Over the course of one day, the story follows the lives of several characters in a small town as they attempt to maintain business as usual in the face of a very unusual business.

Today in the small East Coast island Town of Wilby, Carol French, the local realtor, is trying to sell the mayor a house that belonged to her recently deceased mother-in-law. Her police officer husband, Buddy is in the middle of an investigation into the town's deviant underbelly.

It seems that Buddy is also about to begin a love affair with the wrong-side-of-the-tracks just-back-in-town Sandra Anderson.

Meanwhile, Sandra's daughter, Emily, isn't very happy that her mother has given her a handful of condoms to use with her new one-track-mind boyfriend. Add to the mix the apparently dyslexic sign-painter Duck MacDonald, and MacKenzie Fisher, the mayor's algebra-challenged young daughter, and it's just another Thursday in Wilby.

Directed by acclaimed director/actor/writer Daniel MacIvor, "Wilby Wonderful" features a list of renowned Canadian actors including Sandra Oh, Maury Chaykin, Susannah Hoffman, Rebecca Jenkins, Ellen Page, Daniel MacIvor, Callum Keith Rennie, Paul Gross, James Allodi and Kathryn MacLellan.

"Wilby Wonderful" was filmed in Shelburne in the summer of 2003. It is produced by Lunenburg County-based producer Camelia Freiberg.

"Wilby Wonderful" will have its premier South Shore screening this Saturday, February 26, at the Waldorf School in Blockouse. Mr. MacIvor will be there to intro and discuss the film.

The evening starts with desserts at 6:30 p.m. with the screening set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
