C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005) Wanting nothing more than to prove himself a man's man to his father, for years, Zac ignores the feelings he develops for other men until he can no longer deny who he is.

The Adventures of Bob and Doug McKenzie: Strange Brew (1983) Originally appearing on SCTV, Bob and Doug are as Canadian as they come. The screenplay is written and directed by (and stars) Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas as two brothers (encompassing every Canadian stereotype imaginable), helping a friend regain control of a brewery from her uncle after her father passes away. Follows a similar story to Shakespeare’s Hamlet with the brothers as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. 3. The Trotsky (2009) Directed by the talented Canadian Jacob Tierney, the film follows seventeen-year-old Leon Bronstein as he tries to unionize the student body of his Montreal public high school. He strives to base his life on that of Soviet revolutionary Leon Trotsky. Stars proud Montreal native Jay Baruchel. 4. Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001) Winning 22 awards, this film tells the story of an evil spirit of Inuit legend that, years after it's conjured, still causes conflict in the village between two brothers, a beautiful woman, and a jealous man. It is filmed entirely in Inuktitut and features an Inuit cast from Canada. 5. One Week (2008) Director and writer Michael McGowan makes Canada an actual character by highlighting the country's stunning beauty in his film.
