Saw a preview of this movie the other day, and I have to say it was probably one of the better movies I’ve seen in a while. Ben Tyler is told he has terminal cancer, and he takes off in a cross-country motorcycle trip to figure out what life really means.

Beautiful scenery (I’m probably biased), a wicked soundtrack, a surprising amount of humorous moments, and lots of hard-hitting emotion made the time fly by quickly.

And, there’s even a food tie-in. Ben buys a motorcycle, but doesn’t know what he’s going to do with it and has a coffee while he thinks. And rolls up the rim. Can’t be a Canadian movie without working Tim Horton’s into there somewhere!

So if you only had one week to live, what would you do? Eat all the high fat and greasy foods that you’ve missed during your healthy eating years? Ditch everything and travel far away? Spend your life savings on all the Michelin-starred meals you can get your hands on? Forget about food and concentrate on friends and family? Right now, are you living the life you want to lead?

One Week opened across Canada on March 6th. Avoid the inevitable Watchmen crowds and go see this one instead.

  1. I know this is an old post, but my husband and I just watched this the other day and we thought it was fantastic. Great Canadian landscape and a wonderful story. An American would probably not get it (Fort Mc-what?). It’s definitely a movie that not only makes you appreciate your own life and vulnerability, but also one that makes you appreciate the beauty of this great country. 🙂
