Storyline

The Bay of Love and Sorrows is a haunting modern tragedy set on the rural shores of New Brunswick's Bay of Miramichi. In late summer 1973, Michael Skid, the son of a well-to-do judge, returns home and rents a dilapidated farm. He begins to spread the gospel of communal ideals, which he has absorbed during his travels in India. His new worldliness and ideas go over well with impoverished siblings Madonna and Silver Brassaurd and the hopelessly naïve Carrie. They go over less well with Tom Donnerel, a young farmer and Carrie's fiancé. Wounded by Tom's derision, Michael befriends ex-convict Everette Hatch, who, recognizing opportunity, exploits Michael's ideas to his advantage. Believing himself capable of understanding people from the other side of the track, Michael fails to recognize that the ex-con is manipulating him and so sets off a catastrophic chain of events in the community.

Outstanding
20 September 2002 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the AFF 2002 in Halifax. Having read DAR's book a couple of years ago and finding the book captivating, fascinating, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see the film - particularly since Richards had a hand in it.

Not so detailed, intricate and convoluted as the print version of the story, the fidelity of the film to the print original is nonetheless very, very good. Strongly recommended is the reading of the book immediately prior to the viewing of the film: a friend saw the film without having read the book and although greatly enjoying the film, missed some of the subtleties of the film and all the story that wasn't told in the film.

Loved it, want it for my home DVD collection ...
