Vancouver filmmaker Ross Munro writes, directs and stars in the made-in-Vancouver film A Legacy of Whining, which sees its world premiere this month. Here are five reasons we think you should go:
1. A Legacy of Whining, also starring local actor Robert David Duncan, is an homage to all the great buddy movies” of the 1970s like Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Freebie and The Bean and Hickey and Boggs, mashed up and inspired by Martin Scorsese’s dusk to dawn film After Hours.
2. This is writer/director Ross Munro’s second feature and this time he takes the lead acting role as he channels his inner Woody Allen persona as A Legacy of Whining harkens back to Woody’s early 70’s comedies like Take The Money and Run and Bananas.
3. The producing team of Ross and Maria Munro and Ron Heaps last film Broken Palace played at the Vancouver International Film Festival to great acclaim in 2014.
4. All the cast/crew will be in attendance at he world premiere of this Vancouver born and bred indie feature.
5. Noted Vancouver film critic, writer and filmmaker Katherine Monk will be the host for the premiere.
