This was pretty good, a little artsy-fartsy for my taste but for those of you that like that sort of thing it's a cinematographers delight, visually stimulating. Canadian content with an environmental message, family ties and a sweet love story with a bittersweet ending, that in turn explains why it's been filmed with so many colors and textures. Once you're aware of Jack's (condition) you understand why he sees things the way he does for the time he has left. "A photojournalist and environmental activist (Kristen Holden-Reid) shows up unannounced on his estranged sisters doorstep in rural Nova Scotia." 06.13 (2)

This is one of those lovingly-filmed quiet movies that is well worth your time. It reveals the conflicts and challenges that arise when a brother who is an environmental activist returns home to a small town in Nova Scotia. His impact on his sister's family and his new relationship with a teacher have unexpected and disruptive consequences. The resolution of these issues is very satisfying.

Beautiful cinematography frames this original story of changing
characters played by an ensemble cast of very proficient actors.
Drawback: It's uncertain whether the facts and figures are accurate as
it is fiction.
I'll definately watch this one again.

Oddly Canadian. Worth watching if you like Lisa Ray. Beautifully shot.

Good moral tale, raising environmental awareness and also regarding self-respect and pragmatism, not taking your family for granted. Other than that it's a bit surrealistic, the acting was great, the cinematography was nice, the soundtrack was excellent and the story was compelling. Another great drama from Canada!

A slow paced movie that eventually gets to the point... if you can get past the spotty filming at the beginining... it does have a good story to tell. Best film-shots, textures and colours of the art, the dolls and the making of art with kids.

Decent Canadian film with Lisa Ray (one of my favourute's)

Really slow; needed a lot of editing. I didn't really understand the main character and didn't really care about him.

Great character development and cinematography steeped in very strong waldorf tea...Funny how it hasn't changed in 20 years or from coast to coast :D

Ultimately drags, both through the pacing and the lack of compelling character arcs, to keep it from being truly memorable once it's over.

Too earnest for it's own good, but Aaron Webber has impressed my with two intelligent performances now, I can't wait to see what he does next.
