Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster

Based on true events

Canadian movies are rarely this slick and thrilling. Scott Speedman gives a charismatic performance as Edwin Boyd (Canada's John Dillinger), a failed actor, family man and impoverished war veteran who turns to bank robbery.
Publicity still from the film Edwin BoydHe becomes a beloved national celebrity and public enemy number one, but such a story can only end one way.

Morlando's stylish directorial debut is a giddy rush of entertainment with tragic undertones, shot with an evocative washed-out newsreel aesthetic (the black-and-white rear projection used during driving scenes is a nice touch). This impressive crime pic establishes Morlando as a filmmaker to watch and gives hometown audiences a pleasant festival surprise.
