A video postcard of beautiful Nova Scotia, with an uneven but never dull story thrown in
1 October 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Page (Mia Kershner) is a volatile young adult who breaks laws when she wants attention. Her mother, Sally, a staid professor, is put in charge of Page in order to secure Page's release from jail. They travel to Nova Scotia from California, due to the death of Sally's estranged father. Sally's pregnancy at 17 forced a riff between her father and herself, worsened by the father's cold personality. Yet, Sally, too, is a very reserved person who has trouble relating her feelings to her daughter. Page, however, has no trouble declaring what is on her mind. In Nova Scotia, the two travel in different directions. Page likes the setting and also favors a young Indian man she meets there. Sally detests the town and its memories but finds temporary solace in the affections of another professor. Is there a happy road for these two ladies to travel together? The true beauty of this film is the setting. After a viewing, most people will be booking a flight to Nova Scotia sometime in their futures. Taking place in autumn, the place has a charm that is truly spectacular. That said, the story is compelling but uneven. Things happen quickly and unexpectedly and then the plot turns in another direction, only to dish out more of the same. Sally and Page are truly troubled souls and one both likes and dislikes each of them. Dale and Kirshner are quite fine in their respective roles. Harrison is attractive as the mixed up professor in his own right. All of the supporting cast is adequate. Do you want to take an armchair tour of a place far away? If you can put up with some petulant folks along the way, this film will show you the beautiful maritime province of Canada in grand fashion.
