Thirteen-year-old Bea (Charlotte Salisbury) wants a best friend more than anything else, but when she meets boisterous Kate (Lucinda Armstrong Hall) she gets more than she ever imagined. Porcupine Lake is a story of bravery and the secret world of girls set in northern Ontario during a hot and hazy summertime when adulthood has not yet arrived, but childhood is quickly vanishing.

Critic Reviews for Porcupine Lake

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

  • Indy filmmaker Ingrid Veninger strives earnestly to create an iconic Canadian coming-of-age story. It isn't entirely successful.

  • Remarkable performances by the two young actors at the centre of the film -- along with assured, subtle storytelling by director/screenwriter Ingrid Veninger -- propel this cottage country coming-of-age drama.

    Sep 12, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Porcupine Lake is a brutally honest coming of age film, whose ending is a gut punch of raw emotions.

  • The performances from the two young leads are particularly strong, and they are amply supported by the older actors in the film.

  • Veninger has bottled that very precise moment when a young girl is trying to figure out the woman she's going to become.
