Pacific Northwest Pictures is excited to announce that All The Wrong Reasons
has been selected for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, where it will have its world premiere this September. The film is the feature debut from award-winning writer and director Gia Milani, and is one of two features Cory Monteith completed before his tragic recent 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. PNP will release the film theatrically in Canada.
ALL THE WRONG REASONS
follows four co-workers at a big box department store who are all struggling to connect and come to terms with their lives. Since witnessing a tragic family event, Kate (Vanasse) has kept herself as physically and emotionally isolated as possible while her husband James (Monteith), the store’s ambitious manager, does his best to force Kate out of her shell. Missing intimacy, James becomes close with Nicole (Hampshire), a cashier who is clinging to what’s left of her youth while juggling single motherhood. When a new temp employee arrives (Zegers), his determination to overcome his struggles and achieve his dream helps Kate to re-evaluate her life and begin the transition back to the person she once was.
