Based on the true life story of the director Michael Grais.

Drive on up to Lakeshore
17 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There's something about a black and white film that can't be reproduced when it's in colour. In a film like "Lakeshore Drive" it adds a layer of danger and grit; a style that tells you this is going to be something unique.

Written and directed by Michael Grais, the film is based on his life story. This isn't a surprising thing as the moments are real, tense and the very way the movie is shot makes you feel like you're in it rather than watching it.

Grais has an excellent sense of pacing and pause. Though a short film, it never feels rushed – each scene plays out at just the right speed to keep it at its most powerful.

The opening scene with Eddie Stein (Peter Dobson) and Sally Stein (Adrienne Wilkinson) is the highlight of the film. The two actors play perfectly off of each other in a scene about control. It is, in fact, Wilkinson's top performance to date as she plays a woman who is both manipulating her husband, while, at the same time, is clearly not entirely functional; she's walking a fine edge, bordering a breakdown, but still she controls the situation.

"Lakeshore Drive" is currently a short film looking to expand into a feature. It would be interesting to see where Grais' vision and story takes these characters in a longer piece.
