It's hard to be objective....
5 November 2000 | by (Prospect, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

When I turned on the tv the morning after the crash and saw tape of the fishermen who had been the first to reach the crash site, my first thought was not for the dead but for those who had to deal with the horror of having hundreds of strangers die in their midst. For months afterward there were soldiers and sailors walking along the shore looking for debris, and ships trying to bring up wreckage. When the movie was made almost two years later it was still unthinkable to make it at Peggy's Cove where the crash took place. Many people objected to the film being made at all as being exploitative. So it is hard to be objective about the movie. I found it moving and sensitive, and was pleased to see it addressed the trauma of those on the ground. No movie ever suffered from having Kate Nelligan in it, of course, and the rest of the cast is restrained as befits the theme of unresolved grief. By all means see this one.
