Trigger movie scene

Tracy Wright (l.) and Molly Parker rock out in Trigger.

The music-filled 2010 film drama Trigger stars avant-garde actress Tracy Wright (Highway 61) in her final performance before her death from cancer that same year.

Wright and Molly Parker (TV’s Deadwood) portray two female rockers who reunite 10 years after their friendship — and band — has fallen apart. Coming together for a benefit concert following their long estrangement, the two begin with a dinner, followed by the gig, and finally the after-party, all with the hope of recapturing their once-magical connection.

Directed by Bruce McDonald (This Movie is Broken), the unrated Canadian movie also stars Don McKellar (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Sarah Polley (Splice) and Callum Keith Rennie (TV’s The Killing).

Trigger was first seen at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, where it was selected as one of the fest’s Top Ten films. Its premiere in the U.S. is on DVD.
