Teenager Peter Mark (Peter Kastner) has it all: supportive parents (Charmion King, Claude Rae), a loving girlfriend (Julie Biggs), and a comfortable middle-class existence. But on the brink of finishing high school, he feels emboldened by his impending freedom, and decides to pursue a rebellious new path. After his parents make their disapproval known, Peter decides to move out on his own, confident he’ll conquer the working world with his insight and sophistication. When the reality turns out to be far less glamorous, he settles for a shady new job – that continues his criminal evolution.
Often ranked among the most important Canadian films of all time, Nobody Waved Good-bye is the feature directorial debut of Don Owen (The Ernie Game), who tapped into his documentary roots to deliver a gritty, low budget answer to Rebel Without a Cause. In addition to three of Owen’s early shorts, this disc includes Christopher’s Movie Matinee – an inventive documentary that shows where Toronto teen rebellion landed just a few years later – and Lonely Boy, the landmark Paul Anka short that preceded theatrical screenings of Nobody Waved Good-bye.

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
