Storyline

Fresh out of prison, Dara is on a mission to scatter her mother's ashes in Lake Superior. She meets Noble, an endearing bundle of tragic flaws, and sparks fly between these two lost but likeable souls. Together they set off from Minneapolis to Duluth on what they think will be a redemptive and romantic road trip to the North Shore. They are abruptly sidetracked when Dara accidentally runs over someone on a lonely country road and wrongly takes the blame. The fatal accident was actually choreographed by Henrietta, a Kervorkian wannabe, and Dara and Noble become Henrietta's unwitting pawns. Against their better judgment, Dara and Noble agree to deliver the body to Duluth and hope that will be the end of it. But their troubles have just begun. Dealing with the aftermath of the 'accident' brings out the best and the worst in them. Twists of fate along the way test and strain their relationship even further.

It was really funny!
24 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Great Lakes" was really funny! I like road movies, and I think that Great Lakes gives a good feel for the region, without being corny like Fargo. I like so many of the locations and roadside stops, and it carried a sense of adventure. The movie has so much great back-and-forth dialogue.

At a preview in Minnesota, James Byrne talked about how the project had been scrapped several times over four or five years (amazing!). He talked about finding his cast and getting the picture made. He also talked a bit about the different midwestern accents in the project and that the woman who played Dara was from North Dakota. The two leads have really good chemistry and James seemed like a very good director, a good person to work with.

I just wanted to say how exciting and inspiring it was to be there to see the show. It was really a great production, and I was really glad to be there to see it!
