Movie Info

This low-key Canadian drama stars August Schellenberg as Albert, a young farm boy growing up in 1930s Manitoba. Schellenberg's solitude is interrupted when hobo Gustave (Ed McNamara) shows up, asking for a bit more than a handout. Gustave claims that he's a long-lost relative of Albert's family, a notion the boy takes with a grain of salt--at least until Gustave begins pulling off all manner of miracles. Told from a child's-eye view, Tramp at the Door is for the most part successful in conveying the world as seen from an innocent, uncorrupted perspective. Director Allan Kroeker adapted his screenplay from a story by Gabrielle Roy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
