A touching film
26 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

John and the Missus is a simple,touching and heartfelt story based on the novel of the same name by director, star and writer Gordon Pinsent. Concerning the trials and tribulations of a small mining community on Canada's east coast, the film contains beautiful scenery and excellent performances by all of the cast.

At times very tragic, the film manages to also convey feelings of hope when its characters must deal with the prospect of abandoning their lifelong community.

The film is metaphorically as well as visually rich, and is far superior to many films of exponentially higher budgets. A very potent human story, highly recommended.
