9.8. My American Cousin Poster, A Peter O'Brien Independant Pictures. Inc, & Borderline Productions, Inc., 1985

Genie Award Winner

"The winner of six 1985 Genie Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Oscars), director Sandy Wilson's "My American Cousin" is a nostalgic, delicately-paced drama that plays exactly as if it were a memoir of the central character, many years down the road. Light on a so-called plot, but heavy on character observation, the film works a gentle spell around its viewer, and ends up leaving an unexpected lasting impression."

The poster depicts "Butch" the American cousin in his Cadilac convertable in the Okanagon, interior of British Columbia.
