  • 5 stars Great movie, great cast.reat setting.
  • Absolutely loved the movie. Not your usual movie crap, which makes it so appealing. Great cast, of course, and an intriguing story.
  • Bleak & pure.... its not all about glamour....
  • I love this film and it made want to come and live in Newfoundland. I love the human story, the scenery in which it takes place, the sense of community. Francis T.
  • Loved the book so much I was afraid the movie would be a huge let-down, but it really wasn`t. The plot has some interesting variations from Proulx`s original, but the actors, director and film crew did an excellent job of capturing the essence and charm of this small town in Newfoundland with its eccentric characters. Kevin Spacey was awesome, as always.
  • I adored that film because of its story and location.
  • it was an incredibly moving film that stirred the depth of my spirit and reminded me of how simple life/living can be extremely rewarding. infact, i felt rather propelled to revisit newfoundland once again. this film is a timeless classic! i loved the naturalness of the performers and the directors sensibilities.
  • Just watched this movie again. I think Lasse Hallstrom did a wonderful job! I hope he makes another movie set in Newfoundland. Dame Judi Dench is always terrific! As is Gordon Pinsent and Pete Postlethwaite. I love when Pete comes to Canada, but I hate when he is the bad guy! Pete...please come back, but do something like Among Giants...will ya. :o)
  • brillant movie
  • Absolutly Fabulous
