Storyline

The Ryans of St John's, Newfoundland, are an old family steeped in tradition. Donald Ryan edits the local newspaper while his brothers and sisters run the funeral parlour. Early one morning, Donald's son Draper Doyle goes to the newspaper office to surprise his father with a birthday cake, only to witness something traumatic. Two days later, Donald Ryan is dead. In the ensuing weeks, Draper Doyle's sleep is plagued by nightmares, and he realises he has no memories of the time surrounding his father's death. With the help of his uncle Reg, Draper Doyle tries to come to terms with the truth about Donald Ryan... and the key may be Donald's lucky hockey puck.

Quirky but very funny movie; I thoroughly enjoyed it.
7 August 1999 | by (Gaithersburg, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie because, having seen Wendel Meldrum as "Miss White" in The Wonder Years", I wondered (pardon the pun) if her acting ability was a one shot deal. This movie show that it most definitely is Not! She is good; Very good, and I recommend this movie highly.
