Wilby Wonderful

Wilby Wonderful tells the story of a small island community, location unspecified, where the response to "Live and let live" is "We don't do that around here, thank God!" Some sort of scandal (and a backwards banner) threaten to disrupt the "Wonderful Wilby" festivities, but the plot gets deeper and darker. As far as I know, this is the first ever gay slapstick suicide comedy. Worth seeing.

WILBY WONDERFUL, dir. Daniel McIvor, 2004 Canada, 99 min. 35mm, distribution: Film Movement
