Charming Québecois film that I thank the Toronto Public Library for stocking. (Note to all non-Torontonians: our current mayor is trying to privatize our library system, or if not that, then cut out its heart. I'm not sure that I would ever discover under-marketed Canadian films without our library system, which would be a shame because they only rarely disappoint.)
So, about this movie itself: a very small, remote community is trying to land a factory, but the owners won't move there without there being a doctor in town. When the mayor packs up and leaves under cover of night, a local man attempts to convince the townspeople to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and show the newly arrived Dr. Lewis - exiled there as community service for a misdemeanour - the beauty and charm of small-town life. The ending is a little tidy for me, but overall it's a pleasure to watch. A movie you won't be sorry to have seen, if you can manage to track it down - check your local library first!
