Movie Info

A middle-aged Montreal woman lives in poverty while paying her father's rent in a private retirement home, and finds herself befriended by a nervous yet good-natured young man in this adaptation of Gogol's The Overcoat. Elise (Pascale Montpetit) lives in a cramped inner-city apartment with her bird, a box of keepsakes, and a white coat handed down to her by her beloved father. She's drifting in memories of happier times when a man named Sterling (Joey Klein) appears, and reminds her of what it's like to be alive after years in self-imposed exile.


Critic Reviews for The Girl In The White Coat

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Ultimately, The Girl in the White Coat feels programmatic, an exercise in watching an emotionally and mentally defenceless person being abused in progressively more outrageous ways.

Impossible to get out of your head, thanks to an astonishing Genie-nominated performance by Pascale Montpetit, who plays an impoverished Montreal woman whose only treasure is a ripped and ratty white coat.
