INDEX : Film A - Z | TAKE-OUT
     
  TITLE: TAKE-OUT
  DIRECTOR: Jean-François Monette
  PRODUCER: Bare Bone Films Inc.
 
SYNOPSIS: In this coming of age tale, Rory is a typical high school student — he runs track, smokes up and has a lousy after-school job. His career so far consists of delivering chicken to suburbanites. Excitement at work is limited to exchanges between his teasing co-worker and hungry, grunting suburbanites.
 
On a delivery like any other, Rory meets Pete, a middle-aged man in the midst of a breakdown. Fascinated by Pete’s material trappings of success and intrigued by the source of his breakdown, Rory is drawn into a friendship with him. Their platonic friendship proves to be a catalyst: Rory’s sexuality forces him to reconsider his small world as his curiosity propels him to take a risk.
 
TAKE-OUT explores the challenging, heady and painful process of a teen’s understanding of the very core of his being — his own sexuality.
