see it!...if you can
29 October 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in a film class when it was first released with the caveat that it probably wouldn't do as well as it should b/c it was a) a "nice" movie b) Canadian - i.e., not a Hollywood blockbuster. Sadly, this prophecy came true. I'd love to see it again and would recommend it to others but what I need to know is, is it available to rent? or even for purchase. Anyone out there know?
