It’s 2002 in suburban Canada, and a 17-year-old film aficionado with his sights set on attending NYU picks up a gig at a local video store. There, he learns what it takes to grow up, how to deal with unresolved trauma, and that maybe not everybody wants to hear him bloviate about Paul Thomas Anderson movies all day. —M.G.
Utterly obsessed with films, never missing an episode of Saturday Night Live, and offering his unsolicited opinions to anyone in earshot, Lawrence has it all figured out. Just ask him. Fixated on leaving Canada after graduation, as well as leaving behind the current version of his high school self, Lawrence sets his sights on attending NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts to pursue his filmmaker dreams. After landing a job at the local video store to start saving for tuition, he befriends his older female manager whose life advice begins to crack his overly confident façade, unexpectedly preparing him for what lies ahead. With entertaining humor and raw moments of overwhelming emotion, I LIKE MOVIES is a spotlight on oblivious teenage arrogance born out of painful insecurity enroute to growing up. —A.B.
