Great Canadian movie. The storyline is pretty intense and deep. A profound story showing the raw reality of real life and all it encompasses. The acting was outstanding and Maslany was fantastic. Hopefully this will lead to more roles in the future.
This is an interesting movie to say the least. Had it not been handled this well it would have been a mess of a film the young actress who plays Ruby(Tatana Maslany)is really good in a role that alot of young actresses would die for
This brilliant ensemble cast is led by Tatiana Maslany as teenage Ruby, and each performance is rich and complex, walking a very fine line of morality. There are some incredibly disturbing themes explored here, but it's all done with integrity. The Toronto International Film Festival should be ashamed for turning this flick down. Congratulations to Sundance for giving it a chance.
First things first, this movie made me really uncomfortable!! This kind of thing happens all the time (not to the letter, but you know...) and it's very sad. One parent bails, and the other is left behind to try and do it on their own. This story tells of a 13 year old girl's struggle with said situation. Very good little Newfie movie!! Check it out.
Another one of those wonderful "indie flicks". Watch for Tatiana Maslany, a superb young talent. Excellent writing, acting, and a charming Newfoundland locale make for an enjoyable 90 minute peek into a few lives on "the rock". Recommended !!
