High Life

High Life

World Premiere at TIFF and Canadian Theatrical Release


Director: Gary Yates
Starring: Timothy Olyphant, Stephen Eric McIntyre, Rossif Sutherland
Distributor: Union Pictures
Based on Lee MacDougall's prize-winning 1996 stage play of the same name, High Life is a blackly comic heist movie from the grubby flipside of the 80's consumer dream. Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) stars as Dick, a hospital janitor who gets an unwelcome visit from the past, from his sleezy, former cell mate, Bug (Stephen Eric McIntyre). Bug requires a crash course in the 80's: different music, different drugs and machines in walls that dispense money. The latter development gives him an idea . the resulting manic bank job unfolds with hectic humour and terrific performances. Joe Anderson (Across the Universe) and Rossiff Sutherland round out this ensemble comedy of hapless losers.
