How to Return Home: Dear Evan Hansen at TIFF

In my heart there is anger; sadness; grief for my more naïve self. Because after Dear Evan Hansen, I do not feel as if I’ve been found, as the film’s tagline so bravely promised I would be. I feel instead as if I’ve been left behind to atrophy in the Music Box Theatre some five hundred miles away, a nineteen-year-old ghost in an echoing auditorium.

TIFF, Martin Doyle, and Telus

I sincerely hope anyone in attendance enjoys their SWAG, and their selfies, and their parties, and - in the extremely rare cases where they might actually see one - the movies.
