Writer/Director/Producer/Actor Ross Munro is pleased to announce that his feature film “A Legacy of Whining” world premiere will screen at the Vancity Theatre at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 in Vancouver. Ron Heaps and Maria Munro are also producers in this fun filled film.
Ross Munro and Robert David Duncan star as two high school friends who get together after many years. The ghosts of both past and present collide as two former high school friends reunite after 30 years and embark on a darkly humorous nocturnal fever dream of a journey where old emotions and resentments bubble to the surface once again. Angie Descalzi, Keilani Elizabeth Rose and Emily Haine (Fargo, Deadpool) join the boys in this hilarious romp.
“A Legacy of Whining” not only throws gasoline on the familiar cinematic trope of male mid-life crisis but also watches gleefully as it sits back and throws a lighted match onto the proceedings. Inspired by its love of early 1970’s American buddy films, this shaggy dog comedy (played out in one desperation-soaked dreamlike evening) tells the tale of two former high school friends, Mitch (Ross Munro) and Dunc (Robert David Duncan) who reunite thirty years later in an attempt to resurrect the faded corpse of their “glory years” only to find, perhaps, that the past ain’t all it’s cracked up to be… “A Legacy of Whining” is really funny!”- The Movie Waffler.com
A labor of love “A Legacy of Whining” was shot in Vancouver, Canada from March to August in 2014 with post-production completed in June 2015. Locations for the film included YVR’s South Terminal, a downtown coffee shop while studio sets and green screen sequences were also constructed and shot at Cineworks Studio in Vancouver as well as Can Am Studios in Burnaby. “A Legacy of Whining” was shot digitally using a Canon 5D camera.
