She said she was playing a lunatic in 1916 in soms insane asylum outside of Toronto. She had 5 days off and got a call asking if she wanted to play a part on The West Wing.

I really wanted to like this film because Findley's book evoked a lot of real emotion for me. Why can't Canadians make good films? This one had the look & feel of an amateur high school play, including the screenplay and the acting. I kept expecting the actors to break into giggle fits, so far removed were they from the internal feelings of the characters in the book. Horrendous! I watched half an hour and gave up, choosing to keep my positive memories of our dear Timothy's wonderful and artful fiction work intact. Dramatic arts need the full support of our Culture and Heritage departments, and they obviously aren't getting it. Very sad indeed.
