Trigger is a Canadian comedy-drama film, released in 2010. Directed by Bruce McDonald, the film stars Molly Parker and Tracy Wright as Kat and Vic, former rock stars reuniting their band Trigger for the first time since their retirement.
The film was originally planned in the late 1990s as a companion film to McDonald's Hard Core Logo, which would have starred Hugh Dillon and Callum Keith Rennie. However, the film was never made at that time, and remained dormant until McDonald and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor decided to rewrite their original screenplay to be about two women instead. Rennie does, however, appear in the film as his Hard Core Logo character Billy Tallent.
Awards and nominations
The film garnered four nominations at the 31st Genie Awards, including Best Actress nods for both Wright and Parker.
Wright and Parker jointly won the prize for Best Actress at the 2011 ACTRA Toronto Awards. Wright's husband McKellar, who appeared in the film, accepted the award in her honour, stating in his speech that the award "means more to me than any I've ever won".
