Storyline

Cody Brewer, a quiet New England fisherman isn't doing too well for himself. His wife feels neglected, and his son keeps getting picked on by the school bully. While out collecting his lobster traps one day, Cody finds a strange green moss that holds magical powers. Once word gets out about the magical moss, the entire town suddenly becomes Cody's best friend, all hoping to get a piece of it. With the townspeople clamoring for some moss and the already delicate state of the Brewer family, Cody has a tough time figuring out exactly what to do. Written by Anonymous

Terrific film
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw A Lobster Tale yesterday at the Phoenix Film Festival. It is a terrific film. Colm Meaney, Alberta Watson and Jack Knight are fantastic. There is a great performance also by Graham Greene who was a perfect choice as the sheriff. It is a nice warm family film with a great message...yet has the laugh and cry moments too. I hope it gets picked up for distribution. Highly recommend it! If you are fan of Jericho/the TV show...there is a pivotal role in Lobster Tale played by Erik Knudsen who plays Dale the young store owner on Jericho. I had the pleasure of meeting the director, Adam Massey after the screening for a Q & A. He is one to watch out for, he will be making some great films in the upcoming years.
