Whirligig
When Nicholas Sinclair flees from his latest personal disaster to take refuge in his parent's home, it looks like yet another train wreck for a 25 year-old who's never known anything but failure. But it won't be a soft landing. Viv and Al Sinclair have worked hard to buy their retirement home by the sea and they'll be damned if their fast-talking, freeloading son is going to ruin it for them. Viv resolves to get Nicholas out of the house and back on his feet, even if it destroys him.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While the acting's uniformly fine, the dialogue occasionally smart and funny, Whirligig feels too schematic with an ending too pat and tidy."
‑ James Adams, Globe and Mail
"Director Thorne hasn't the slightest idea how to make any of this funny or meaningful."
‑ Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
