Finding Truelove — not a typo. It’s “Finding Tim Truelove”, the guy from an old high school yearbook found at a Value Village. The guys purchase this yearbook and then become obsessed w/ those in the graduating class of that year. That leads them to wanting to hunt down their favourite from the yearbook — Timothy Truelove. They get in a minibus and travel to Chico California and and become part of the high school reunion party. It rolls from there…
The concept I absolutely love (crashing a high school reunion party of complete unknowns) and thus can overlook the massive amount of “filler” in this movie. Long story short, it made me smile and laugh. See it.
A generous 4/5 @ HotDocs.
