About the tone and approach…
While Everyday Is Like Sunday is a comedy, our main guiding principle is to be as emotionally authentic as possible, and to present characters that – despite being funny or oftentimes sarcastic – are also capable of moments of sincerity. We cut out any joke that felt even remotely dishonest. If it felt false, it was wrong.
While we take inspiration from the indie, DIY sensibilities present in the mumblecore films from the early naughts – for instance, Andrew Bujalski’s Funny Ha Ha – the film, which moves quickly and is very accessible, equally takes its cue from Seinfeld, John Cassavetes, and Whit Stillman, too. Such an archive inspires Everyday Is Like Sunday through our focus on neurotic, overly analytical relationships, interior problems (as Cassavetes once put it, “the problems that show through your face“) and the snide yet sharp wit featured in urbanite rapport.
Everyday Is Like Sunday stars a combination of prominent young comedians from Toronto’s burgeoning alt-comedy scene (David Dineen-Porter, Nick Flanagan), popular indie musicians taking their first crack at acting (Nick Diamonds of The Unicorns and Islands; Dan Werb of Woodhands), and first-time actors (Adam Gurfinkel, Coral Osborne).
The film contrasts a documentary aesthetic with dramatically composed, cinematic montages swiftly incorporating music and imagery of the streets of Toronto in a wholly unique way.
Ultimately, Everyday Is Like Sunday is a film for people who are in their twenties and want to stay there, and for people who never left. It’s about the feeling you get when you realize you’re getting older and yet your life isn’t turning out the way you hoped it would; when possibilities are diminishing as fast as your bank balance; and when you know this predicament is probably entirely your fault.
