review by
Mike Haberfelner

Teenaged Will (Matt Close) lives in a one mill town somewhere in Canada, but currently the millworkers including Will's dad Frank (Lewis Hodgson) are on strike, which is why currently tensions are high and money is low ... and Will wants to start a band with his friends, singer Vince (Connor Rueter) and drummer River (Maxime Lauzon). Thing is, Will doesn't even own an electric guitar - but enter Will's sister Ronnie (Mattea Brotherton), who has made it her business selling weed and who buys Will an electric guitar plus amplifyer - but insists on becoming the band's manager. And manager the band badly needs, as the bandmembers butt heads way too often, especially after Will brings in Artie (Dana Hodgson) as their bass player, who might be brilliant on his instrument but a bit of a nuisance otherwise. But Artie also brings in his uncle Eddy (Ted Dykstra), who owns the local music store and who lets them practice in his basement. And who's the only one in town who has connections to the music business. So it takes lots of mediating on Ronnie's part to keep the band together, made all the worse by the fact that she has her own problems, with her and Will's father as well as with drugs in general. And then there's Artie, who becomes more and more unstable, especially after his father (Ash Catherwood) dies. So while by the by opportunities arise, the band is under constant threat of going to the dogs ...

 

Happy FKN Sunshine is many things at once, slice-of-life flick, comedy, social drama, with even elements of thriller towards the end - and this blend works surprisingly well, thanks to a captivating story that's told in an intentionally unexcited but engaging way that by and large avoids clichés, that's populated by well fleshed out characters played by a solid ensemble cast, and that really brings across that mill-town feel with its signs of impending decay. But what's most important is, the film's very entertainingly told and is sure to touch a chord with pretty much everyone.
