The Film Club

By David Gilmour

Email This Page

When David Gilmour (former film critic at the CBC), sees his son, Jesse, hating high school, he comes up with an unusual deal: Jesse may stay at home for the rest of the year, but he must watch three movies (of Gilmour’s picking) per week,  and get ready to discuss their social, cultural and personal impact.

Great for:

  • Readers who are looking for a light, quick memoir
  • Those who will cut Gilmour some slack for what can understandably be seen as questionable parenting practices
  • Anyone interested in a book that explores an original approach to the age-old question: “What do I do if my kid really hates high school?”


New titles are added on a continuous basis. To recommend or suggest a book, please email me
