Movie Info

The disappearance of a young Cree woman named SUZANNE BIRD triggers events in two worlds: the remote Northern Ontario town she fled years ago, and the big city where she became a successful model. Up north, her uncle WILL clashes with a local drug dealer who's looking for Suzanne, and believes Will knows her whereabouts. Meanwhile, her fiercely independent twin sister ANNIE travels to Toronto to retrace her sibling's footsteps... and finds herself drawn into the seductively glamorous life Suzanne left behind.

  • The movie stands on its own merits, as a simmering whodunit where plot basics are secondary to personalities, thanks to a superb cast.

  • "Through Black Spruce" is a disengaged slog that confines its poetry to a title that nonetheless remains appropriate in one key way: The film creaks like it's made of wood.

  • At the very least, McKellar provides ample space for Brandon Oakes and Tanaya Beatty to deliver career-making performances.

  • ...an entirely misbegotten endeavor...

    April 17, 2019 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • Through Black Spruce is less than the sum of its actorly parts. It lacks a feeling of real investment in these characters.

    April 5, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Viewers, whether Indigenous or not, will find much to connect with in this dark, moody tale.
