Trigger made my Top Ten list for the year’s best films and Tracy Wright got the runner-up spot in my picks for the best performances of 2010. Shot in just a few days on a shoestring budget, Trigger is a little gem of a film worth adding to any collection of Canadian films.
Trigger on DVD!!!
comes to DVD today! I caught the world premiere of Trigger when it opened the Bell Lightbox during TIFF last fall, and I fell in love with it instantly. I gave it a very enthusiastic five stars in my review from the festival, citing the excellent script by Daniel MacIvor, as well as Bruce McDonald’s loving rendering of Toronto and his pitch-perfect tribute to rock and roll. Trigger is most memorable, however, for the strength of its two female leads: as rockers Kat and Vic, Molly Parker and the late Tracy Wright are a flawless duo, not only in duelling with MacIvor’s snappy banter, but also in delivering raw, honest performances as the two fading friends.
