The Husband

The Husband 

Comedy, Drama
1 hr 20 mins

Twenty-five years since Canada’s favourite rebel filmmaker, Bruce McDonald, began his filmmaking career with the cult classic Roadkill, he debuts The Husband where it all began, the Toronto International Film Festival.

While not a road movie, The Husband sees McDonald returning to his storytelling roots with an Odyssean everyman story about the most universal of quests – to do the right thing instead of the easy thing and to overcome heartbreak and humiliation in love.

A raw and openhearted drama about a man named Henry left to care for his infant son when his wife is imprisoned for cheating on him with a minor, The Husband takes an uncompromisingly honest look at a character rendered utterly humiliated by the person he loves. As Henry struggles to continue on with the day-to-day responsibilities of changing diapers and making it into the office, he attempts to remedy his grief with erratic and self-destructive distractions until he hits the inevitable bottom and must face what his life has become.
