One Week (2008)

Ben Tyler has been diagnosed with cancer. With a grim chance of survival in the best case scenario even if he immediately begins treatment, he instead decides to take a motorcycle trip from Toronto through the Canadian prairies to British Columbia.


Perfect movie. Underrated.

A refreshingly positive movie featuring a smorgasbord of Canadiana. Solid acting and an inventive script that plays a little like a cross between "Garden State" and "500 Days of Summer" (with more pathos) drive this movie to decent if not great heights. Canadians will get the in jokes about coffee, hockey, and biking cross country from Newfoundland for a case of beer. Others, much less so. Ultimately, the over-Canadian-ness of it will hold it back from reaching the highest international heights, but "One Week" is an inspiring, merry movie that should be sought out.

3.5 stars out of 4.
