October Gale Review

21 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Ruba Nadda

Cast: Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman, Tim Roth, Aidan Devine, Callum Keith Rennie

Run Time: 91 minutes

Synopsis: Whilst mourning the death of her husband on their island retreat, a widowed doctor is forced to treat a mysterious man who washes ashore during stormy weather with a gunshot wound. 

Premiering during a special presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), October Gale is a dramatic thriller that’s too devoid of tension to be considered thrilling and far short of emotional and relatable characters to be considered dramatic.

All this is a shame because the opening sequence of sweeping Parry Sound long shots and Steadicam shots of Helen (Patricia Clarkson) opening and cleaning the family’s vacation cottage offered a promising segue into what appears to be (on the surface), a study in normative bereavement with a murderous twist. Likewise, the film’s setting is a beautiful contradiction »

The Trailer For October Gale Breezes In

27 January 2015 3:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

First hearing about October Gale last year, with the announcement of casting, hopes were high. With writer-director Ruba Nadda (Cairo Time) at the helm, steering performances from Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces Of April), Academy Award nominee Tim Roth (Rob Roy), and Genie Award nominee Scott Speedman (Adoration) – it had all the hallmarks of a taut thriller, with perhaps something of a twist on the tired home invasion schtick that persists in cinema. At the very least, it promised a dark drama, made by a woman, and led by a woman.

For those unfamiliar with the project, Patricia Clarkson plays Helen – a qualified doctor who is mourning her dead husband. She opts to spend some time alone at their isolated waterside cottage during a huge storm, but is disturbed when a man (Scott Speedman) washes ashore with a gunshot wound. Soon enough, his would-be assassins follow – led by Tim Roth. »

26 January 2015 4:20 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Patricia Clarkson is one of the most talented and versatile American actresses working today, so it’s always a nice surprise to see her headlining a feature, even if said feature looks like a generic home invasion thriller. At least, that’s what the recently released trailer for “October Gale” makes it look like. Clarkson stars as Helen, a depressed woman who is working through the grief of losing her husband by cleaning out the remote cottage she shared with him. After a mysterious wounded man (Scott Speedman) crawls into her cottage, Helen is compelled to take care of him. When the man’s attackers, led by Tim Roth in full-on stoic creep mode that we know and love, find the cottage to finish the job, Helen has to defend her life by any means necessary. With “October Gale”, Canadian writer/director Ruba Nadda works with Clarkson again after the »
