Storyline

Thirty-two year old Winnipeger Joel Rothman's personal life falls apart after his wife, Mari, catches him cheating. Following, he can't sleep which affects the parenting of his adolescent daughter Jenny. A therapist, he dismisses the work of counseling his patients. Because of his poor work, his Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), his employer, wants to transfer him to the small town of Gimli, which he doesn't want both for his own sake and Jenny's. As such, he begins to do whatever he can for his three remaining patients - Victor Koblinsky, Chandra Mergulhao and Sophie Winters - who he counsels in group therapy. Although each of the three has a different issue with which they are dealing, each does suffer from delusional thoughts the result of post-traumatic stress syndrome. Joel is under pressure from the HMO to certify all three, despite his assurance that all three are getting better. Ultimately, Victor, Chandra and Sophie have to convince him of what is reality and what is ... Written by Huggo

Sean Garrity is promising

Lucid is a very good supernatural thriller that had me entertained throughout its running time. Usually when I go to a Canadian film it is with a certain apprehension; I think I'm going to be bored to death by some witless story that was made as a tax dodge. Sean Garrity with his second film is roughly where Atom Egoyan was when he made Exotica: just on the cusp of world recognition. The story is very funny at first--you have the nuttiest trio of confused minds in therapy, and their therapist, Joel, who has many problems himself. The tone gets darker and more violent as the story advances.

Jonas Chernick as Joel and Michelle Nolden as Chandra are very good, Joel trying to help Chandra with her fixation on her dead sister. Callum Keith Rennie does a terrific turn as Victor, a man full of psychic pain and violence--we first see him throwing a chair against the wall and demanding that his release form be signed. Rennie has an expressive acting style that allows him to be funny, sinister and very dangerous all in the same scene. This is a film that deserves wide distribution outside Canada.
