Pacific Northwest Pictures is honoured to announce that ALL THE WRONG REASONS is set to open theatrically at Cineplex Theatres across the country starting Friday, November 1st in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Halifax and Victoria, with additional cities and dates to be announced shortly.
Shot in Halifax, ALL THE WRONG REASONS is the feature debut from award-winning writer and director Gia Milani, and is one of two features Cory Monteith completed before his tragic death. In this emotional and ultimately uplifting ensemble drama, Mr. Monteith is joined on screen by a trio of Canada’s most heavy-hitting young talents -- Karine Vanasse (Polytechnique, Pam Am), Kevin Zegers (The Colony, Transamerica), and Emily Hampshire (Cosmopolis, Good Neighbors, My Awkward Sexual Adventure). The film was produced by Strong Arm Pictures, Buffalo Gal Pictures, and Shore Road Pictures.
Following a bittersweet bow at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, writer/director Gia Milani was awarded the 2013 Grolsh Discovery Prize for her exceptional filmmaking journey to date. “We are thrilled to recognize Gia Milani for her incredible perseverance and unshakeable vision,” said Sarah Waldock, Director of Marketing for Grolsch. “ALL THE WRONG REASONS was truly a labour of love and commitment, and Gia’s passion, coupled with her tenacity and innovative approach to the rigorous and creative aspects of filmmaking made her an ideal choice for the Discovery Award. She had to overcome so much for this project to come to fruition. This film also serves as a testament to the talent and charisma of Cory Monteith.”
Pacific Northwest Pictures Vice-President, Emily Alden adds, “We are very proud of this film and excited to be able to bring it to screens this fall. Gia Milani is such an exciting emerging director to discover and the film features a quartet of powerful performances that have been moving audiences to tears at its festival premieres. We’re thrilled to now be bringing it to the public.”
