Welcome to the House of Crouse. To me the still shot of two teens, one wearing an Edward Bear t-shirt, hitchhiking on a two-lane highway is a powerfully nostalgic Canadian image. I grew up in 1970s era Nova Scotia where hundreds of kids (me included) hitchhiked on roads big and small. The image is iconic, a sentimental picture of a simpler time brought to vivid life in “Weirdos,” Bruce McDonald and Daniel MacIvor’s sweet new coming of age story. So pull up a beanbag chair, pull on your tie dyed t-shirt and listen to Bruce and Daniel as they transport us back to the 1970s. C’mon in and sit a spell.
