The movie was released across the United States on March 29, 2019 and had stunning box office success. It has been one of the highest grossing independant films of 2019 so far in the USA. It more than doubled predictions, bringing in $6.4 million USD the opening weekend It has received a 92% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It has received an A+ Cinemascore rating (meaning strong word of mouth business, repeated viewings and the best industry guarantee of box office success). It has brought in $18 million USD to date.
In spite of this success and a petition which has reached into the tens of thousands asking Cineplex to bring it to Canada, it has not yet been accepted for national distribution. Given that Cineplex owns an estimated 80% of Canadian theatres, many are now viewing this as a freedom of speech issue. Because of its influence in the entertainment industry in Canada, Cineplex has a duty to consumers to treat this film in the same way it would treat others with the same success record.
