Cas & Dy­lan

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Star­ring Richard Drey­fuss and Ta­tiana Maslany Globe 14A 91 min­utes

out of five some pre­dictable odd-cou­ple bick­er­ing con­ducted on high­ways through­out Western Canada. Cas strug­gles with writ­ing a fit­ting sui­cide note. Dy­lan of­fers to help. Along the way, they come to an un­der­stand­ing, with Dy­lan learn­ing to re­spect Cas’s stub­bornly held death wish and Cas learn­ing to ap­pre­ci­ate Dy­lan’s pen­chant for petty lar­ceny, her am­bi­tion and her out­ra­geous be­hav­iour. De­spite the cliché of it all, Drey­fuss and Maslany damn near sell this movie. Maslany, from the TV se­ries Or­phan Black, is pow­er­fully charis­matic and com­mit­ted. And Drey­fuss, whose ca­reer has taken a shmaltzy turn since his Jaws/Close En­coun­ters days, el­e­vates the ma­te­rial with a still-sharp, sar­donic at­ti­tude. The dy­namic be­tween the two ac­tors should make for some crowd-pleas­ing cheer for au­di­ences across Canada. Ex­cept Win­nipeg.
