quietearth [Film Festival 09.08.09] Canada movie trailer news drama

While patiently awaiting trailerage, the good folks at Twitch have scored the first clips for a film we've been following for quite a while. (stills here) How does the sexual exploration of a tomboy look? Damn fine.

Year of the Carnivore is a romantic-comedy-drama about a girl with an unrequited crush on a boy who thinks she's bad in bed, so she goes out to get more 'experience'. SAMMY SMALLS is a 21-year-old tomboy who works as a store detective at Big Apple Food Town. Her job is to deliver shoplifters to her boss who beats them up so they never re-offend. Sammy feels guilty over her part in the dodgy scheme and wants to quit, but she doesn't have many options. She certainly isn't moving back home to live with her unhappy and over-protective parents. Meanwhile, Sammy is head over heels for scruffy street musician Eugene Zaslavsky. He's perfect for her, funny, irreverent and sensitive, but the problem is, he doesn't want to be in a relationship. After a disastrous one-night stand that goes beyond the boundaries of their friendship, Eugene suggests they play the field to get more experience. Following his advice, Sammy hatches a plan catapulting her on a quest that takes her through her neighbours’ bedroom, the public swimming pool, and finally to blackmailing shoplifters into giving her sex lessons in the woods behind the supermarket.

Sorry folks, the director asked us to take down the clips.

I'm not complaining, Canadian cinema needs as much attention as it can get, but am I alone here in not knowing what the Quiet Earth angle is to this movie?
