SWIFF 2018: KINGSWAY

SWIFF PRESENTS SWIFF 2018: KINGSWAY

Born and raised in Sarnia and a graduate of Northern Collegiate, Bruce Sweeney has written and directed eight feature films. His film Live Bait won best Canadian feature film at The Toronto International Film Festival in 1995 and he won a Canadian Comedy Award for his film The Last Wedding


In Sweeney's latest Vancouver-set dramedy, a single car mechanic's suspicions that her sister-in-law is having an affair prompts their small circle of family and friends to confront their own stalled routes to romance. In Kingsway, some are unlucky at love and others are just plain inept. The latter populate Sweeney’s heartfelt farce that delivers finely tuned dysfunction while uncovering many skeletons in the closet. An engaging bird’s nest of sordid—or just plain sorry—tales, Kingsway kicks off at the 2400 Motel on the titular thoroughfare and comes to a raucous, raunchy close six kilometers away at Main Street’s China Cloud Gallery in Vancouver (Sweeney's current hometown). As Sweeney delights in pulling rugs out from under his cantankerous cast, Kingsway adroitly walks the razor’s edge between painful distress and comic excess which take place at the point where people who’ve been seeing castles in the air are now thinking about moving in.
