The Grand Seduction
Canada, 2013, 115 Minute Running Time
US Premiere
Topic: Comedy
Program: World Cinema Now
Language: English

With charm and chuckles to spare, Don McKellar’s (Last Night) droll comedy features a superb performance from Brendan Gleeson as one of the down-on-their-luck Newfoundland villagers determined to trick a big-city doctor (a delightful Taylor Kitsch) into settling in their costal community.

Gleason’s Murray French, a fisherman no longer allowed to fish, heads up a band of citizens who see hope for their locale in the form of a new factory. The problem? The company insists that a full-time doctor commit to the village for a five-year term. When the somewhat unscrupulous Dr Lewis arrives in town for what he sees as a month’s service, the villagers resort to any means necessary to get him to stay including listening in on the good doctor’s phone conversations to learn his likes and dislikes…

Rollicking humor, quiet moments of whimsy and genuinely touching scenes – all anchored in the gorgeous seaside community of Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, where the film was shot – make The Grand Seduction well nigh irresistible.
