Three part miniseries about Gerald Middleton, an aging historian, who reflects on his youth, relationships (especially the one with his best friend's girl), career (shadowed by a scandal), and current issues, like his marriage and kids.
An idealistic banker in the small town of Conquest, Saskatchewan (pop. 124) tries to make the small town work even though much of its youth has moved away. When a young woman's car breaks down in the town, he convinces her to take charge of the local hardware store in exchange for the cost of the repairs. The result is a light romantic comedy with a message about the state of rural communities. Written by

A charming musing which is difficult to fault or praise.
"Conquest" is a small, dying farming town in rural Saskatchewan where Pincer (Bluteau) has lived his entire life and is struggling to keep the bank from going under and where Daisy's (Fitzgerald) car breaks down leaving her all but stranded. So begins a lite drama mixed with some humor, mild romance, scenic beauty, and the idiosyncratic antics of the local people. "Conquest" is a simple, musing film which is as difficult to fault as it is to praise. An enjoyable watch and little else.
