Wilby Wonderful is a bittersweet comedy about the difference a day makes. Over the course of twenty-four hours, the residents of the tiny island town of Wilby try to maintain business as usual in the face of very unusual business. Wilby Wonderful features a stellar ensemble of Canada’s most talented performers: Sandra Oh, James Allodi, Maury Chaykin, Paul Gross, Rebecca Jenkins and Callum Keith Rennie. Wilby Wonderful is a gentle, intimate story of hope and the importance of believing that we live in a world of creation, not destruction – in fact, we create that world by believing in it. –Film Movement
Pretty slow movie with some real cheese in the script - and I was rooting for it. I mean, I wouldn't have finished it were it not for the cautionary rape and sexual discrimination plots, which I wanted to see through to their end, and when I did make it to the end, my gnawing suspicion that I was basically watching bad television drama was confirmed.
