an American in Canada

i loved this film! it's a low budget attempt at a feel-good film along the lines of boy kills father, boy meets girl, boy wins girls heart. it contains an excellent performance from Rennie as the mild-mannered American who wins over the whole community of a small town in Canada. it has a real 'homely' feel, with subtle, understated camera work which complements the naivety and innocence of the two main characters, and their dreams and ambitions
