Joshua Jackson clad in a black leather jacket riding from sea to sea on
a classic Norton Commandoyou had us at Joshua.
The film One Week,
in which Jackson plays a young man who sets out on a soul searching trip
from Toronto to Tofino after receiving a dire diagnosis, made us even
more smitten with the leading man and our home and native land.
Like a love letter to our country, theres a cameo by Gord Downie, a
soundtrack featuring the Stars and Sam Roberts, and even a little screen
time for roll-up cups from Tim Hortons. While we feared cultural
reference overkill, it turned out to be charming, quirky and unabashedly
Canadians unabashedly patriotic? Its a-boot time.
