Movie Info

The often tragic lives of the residents of a Nova Scotia coal mining town are viewed through the eyes of a depressed young woman in this grim period drama. Set in the 1940s, the film begins with a brief, intentionally puzzling interlude before flashing back several years to focus on the story of Margaret MacNeil (Helena Bonham Carter). Margaret has suffered through the death of her father and her brother, both of whom perished while working as coal miners, and has subsequently developed a hatred

Impressive Canadian film about a young woman's expression of righteous indignation.

Audience Reviews for Margaret's Museum

I'm probably over-rating this because it's among the better Canadian movies I've seen... I wouldn't think it stacks up with other movies I've given four stars to, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. Compelling love story and a wonderful performance by Helena Bonham Carter.
