Toronto, 1899. Aspiring young politician Mackenzie King (Dan Beirne) dreams of becoming the Prime Minister of Canada. But his romantic vacillation between a British soldier and a French nurse, exacerbated by a fetishistic obsession, may well bring about his downfall. In his quest for power, King must gratify the expectations of his imperious Mother, the hawkish fantasies of a war-mongering Governor-General, and the utopian idealism of a Québécois mystic before facing one, final test of leadership. Culminating in an epic battle between good and evil, King learns that disappointment may be the defining characteristic of the twentieth century!

“An exuberant feat of visual design, it's meticulously weird and full of rambunctious humor.”– Nicolas Rapold, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“It ends up being a smashingly good and goofball history of the non-world of Canadian history and flim-flammery, deeply committed to its own colonial crazy.”– Marc Savlov, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
“Proves that contemporary cinema still has an appetite for sweeping portions of unparalleled imagination and humor.”– Alexander Miller, FILM INQUIRY
“Rankin has given a rare, precious gift to fringe-trawlers starved for the next worthy cult film, its sick salaciousness supported by substance.”– Charles Bramesco, AV CLUB
“One of the more vivid and amusing excursions in a year marked by unclassifiable realities and the need for diverting art.”– Robert Abele, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
“[A] combination of supreme creativity, jaw-dropping audacity and amusing tongue-in-cheek dialogue.”– Alissa Simon, VARIETY
