Last week, Torontoist had a chance to catch a sneak peek of Who Loves The Sun. Shot in a number of cottagey locations along the Ontario-Manitoba border (like Kenora!), the indie film stars Lukas Haas, Adam Scott, and Molly Parker as Will, Daniel, and Maggie, the three vertices in an ongoing love triangle. Daniel has always loved Maggie; Maggie marries Will; Maggie cheats on Will with Daniel; Will disappears for five years; Will comes back. That’s where Who Loves the Sun begins.
With such a small cast (it’s just the three and Daniel’s parents, played by R.H. Thomson and Wendy Crewson), the kinda cute, kinda funny, and kinda sad film succeeds based on the strength of its performances, particularly Scott’s, who has his character’s semi-endearing dickishness nailed down. Set in Toronto’s version of the pastoral—cottage country—Who Loves the Sun ought to fulfill any pining for a summer away from the city.
Courtesy of Christal Films, we’ve got three pairs of tickets (good for the entire engagement of the film) and three copies of the film’s score by Portastatic to give away to three lucky Torontoist readers. Just fill in your name, working e-mail address, and the answer to the barely-skill-testing-question. The contest closes on April 5, the day before opening day. Good luck!
UPDATE (April 5): The contest is now closed! Congratulations to our winners Jennifer G., Jess M., and Josh G.!
