Trigger: Mini Review

Molly Parker, Tracy Wright © 2010 New Real Films

Trigger – Toronto-based filmmaker Bruce McDonald knows how to make rock n’ roll movies, and knows how to make them well (Hard Core Logo and This Movie is Broken are prime examples). Trigger is a rarity for him though, as it doesn’t focus on the music, but rather on the characters. The film stars Molly Parker and the late Tracy Wright, and for the most part it’s just them bantering back-and-forth (they play ex-bandmates meeting for the first time years after their band Trigger fell apart). The actresses carry the film perfectly, and McDonald delivers one of the most sincere movies of his career. Special features include a table read and more. Film ** DVD ** (2.5 out of 5 stars).
