The Perfect Son
Two Genie Nominations For Best Actor: Colm Feore & David Cubitt
What does it take to reconcile a lifetime of differences? Secrets exert powerful forces in every family. When two brothers finally come clean, which one is the perfect son?
Two brothers seem headed in different directions. Theo (David Cubitt; Traders, Ali, Medium) has spent his life in and out of drug rehab while Ryan (Colm Feore; Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Red Violin, Chicago) has enjoyed success as a conservative lawyer. Neither has ever particularly liked the other.
Reunited at their father’s funeral, Ryan surprises Theo by revealing that he is gay. As Theo is drawn into Ryan’s private world, a transformation occurs. The brothers develop a complex and loving bond neither ever thought possible.
Produced with the financial participation of Telefilm Canada and The Harold Greenberg Fund.
