Just dropping in quickly after a screening of A No-Hit No-Run Summer, a great little French Canadian film. Set in Montreal summer of 1969, a 12 year old kid who’s obsessed with the Expos’ first season and dying to play ball himself, tries out for the local team but is denied. His dad, previously unenthusiastic about his son’s obsession with baseball, decides to start up a b-team for all the kids who’d tried out but didn’t make it onto the main team. The film is beautifully shot and has a really warm nostalgic feel about it.
Now we’re just getting ready to go out to a party for Every Little Step at 6:30 which will probably just be a short visit since we’ll have to get lined up nice and early for Religulous at the Ryerson later on tonight. Bill Maher is an idol of mine – I can’t wait!
