Toronto – August 22, 2013
Canadian Actor Denis Theriault stars in comedic drama All the Wrong Reasons, premiering Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 6:45 PM at Scotiabank Theatre (259 Richmond St. W.) in Auditorium One during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). An additional screening will take place Monday, September 9, 2013 at 10 PM at Scotiabank Theatre’s Auditorium 10.
All the Wrong Reasons is an ensemble of four everyday people: a store manager, security guard, fire fighter and a clerk who struggle in the aftermath of trauma.
Starring as Radley Weil, Denis’ character is assistant manager of the big box store in line for a promotion. Being a bit over zealous and overstepping his boundaries, Radley is a neurotic, ambitious, eager but overall good guy who does not know when to let the store manager James, played by Cory Monteith, just do his job.
Written and directed by Shore Road Pictures’ Gia Milani, All the Wrong Reasons also stars The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ Kevin Zegers, the late Cory Monteith, Cosmopolis’ Emily Hampshire, Pan Am’s Karine Vanasse and more.
In addition to TIFF, All the Wrong Reasons is also screening during The Atlantic Film Festival on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 7 PM at Park Lane Cinemas (5657 Spring Garden Rd.) in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Taking place September 12 – 19, 2013, The Atlantic Film Festival is an eight-day celebration of film, media and music from around the world. It is a festival that turns Halifax – a charming and historic coastal city – into an international Mecca for the arts, abuzz with filmmakers, industry types and film lovers.
Denis is most recognized for his role in the feature film Growing Op as Shaun Leblanc, a high school reject who guides the lead actor through the troubles of teenage social hierarchy. Starring alongside Rosanna Arquette, Rachel Blanchard and Wallace Langham, Growing Op premiered at The Atlantic Film Festival in 2008.
His performances can also be seen on City’s Seed, HBO’s Call Me Fitz, The Movie Network/Showcase’s G-Spot and more.
Following years of observing directors and being drawn to all aspects of film, Denis wrote and directed Sibling Rivalry, which will have its world premiere at the 2013 Atlantic Film Festival. The story unfolds as siblings Zach and Hannah attend their mother’s wake, painting the perfect picture of a family in mourning, but once behind closed doors family secrets begin to pour out.
Born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Denis discovered at a young age that he wanted to act in anything and everything. His first foray into the acting world was touring with Theatre New Brunswick’s production of Peter Pan. At 14 he got a taste for film when starring in his first big TV role as Jeb in The Movie Network’s hit science fiction series Starhunter.
