The Hanging Garden Photos

Movie Info

Growing up as a gay teen in Nova Scotia was so hard for young William (Chris Leavins) that he ran away at the age of 15 and cut off nearly all contact with his dysfunctional family. With his sister (Kerry Fox) getting married, he returns home for the first time and is saddened to see that little has changed. The abusive nature of his family triggers old self-destructive tendencies in William as he starts to compulsively overeat to deal with the overwhelming pressure surrounding him.

Audience Reviews for The Hanging Garden

  • Jan 28, 2011
    This one is from the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival list I have. Not a bad film just a little hard to understand, maybe someone who smoke's a bag of refer might understand it better. This movie was from the Perspective Canada portion of the film festival which I take to mean was filmed in Canada. A young man returns home to his sisters wedding after being gone for 10 years, and talk about a dysfunctional family, no matter how f up your family may be these guys will beat them hands down. The wedding seemed like something out of Alabama and not Nova Scotia, didn't know they had rednecks up there. Anyway no one warned me in any review but I will warn you, Gay Theme throughout. Overall hard for me to understand. 2 stars.

    A good film, if you can get past the "made for tv" feel. A very interesting concept that just doesnt feel like it was fully developed / executed.

    A charming film. Thom Fitzgerald needs to re-visit us again soon me thinks. A Canadian classic.

    Dreary homecoming movie with a gay man revisiting his childhood pain at "The Hanging Garden". It's somewhat interesting.
