Grown Up Movie Star
Drama | 2012 | Canada
Once the town hero, Ray returns home to Newfoundland following a drug conviction, only to have his wife Lillian leave him for another man and aspirations of stardom. With Lillian gone, Ray flails to try to find a replacement for her, while struggling against a growing awareness of his homosexuality. At loose ends for lack of guidance, his daughter Ruby (Tatiana Maslany - Orphan Black) in turn becomes increasingly curious about her own sexuality and, in a desperate plea for attention, puts herself in increasingly risky situations. She begins spending more and more time with Ray's best friend Stuart, confined to a wheelchair following an accident that involved Ray. When Stuart finds himself attracted to Ruby, he leads the three of them towards a heartbreaking conclusion.
