it's about newfoundland people...
26 January 2004 | by (over the rainbow) – See all my reviews

a truely amazing story about newfoundland's history, moreso than that of Canada. it's about resettlement, after confederation, when joey smallwood decided that small outport towns like that in this movie, were unnecessary and unuseful to the economy, so people in my province actually would cross their houses on the oceans to move them. people left their legacys because they had no choice.

it is a newfoundlanders history. it's the sacrifices we made to be a part of canada. not that we wanted to make them. there are houses here where i live from small communities across the bay that came here during resettlement. families that still have summer homes in those communities and revisit them ever summer religiously.

please don't refer to this as 'canada's east coast'. this isn't the history of canada, and considering the fact that gordon pinsent is a homegrown newfoundlander, i doubt that he, like many other people from our province would apprechiate our history referred to as that of the entire nation. it changed our lives and no one elses.
