In the early 1970s, ten teenagers (five boys and five girls, including Toronto rock band Rush's Alex Lifeson) leave behind parents, school and all other authority figures to live on a rural Ontario farm for 10 weeks. What emerges in front of Allan King’s cameras are the fears, hopes and alienation of a disillusioned generation. Come On Children is a swift, vivid rendering of the growing pains of a counterculture.
This screening is FREE for everyone as part of National Canadian Film Day, a massive, coast-to-coast-to-coast salute to Canadian cinema!
