He soon starts an affair with her, and even moves in her house. What Olivia and Lia do not know that Jack has been labeled an Eco-Terrorist, is on the most wanted list of the FBI, his presence has a negative influence on Thomas, who will soon end up getting arrested, while Jack himself is busy collecting gas cans, and empty milk...

Canadian content, a decent love story & a cinematographers delight
17 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was pretty good, a little artsy-fartsy for my taste and (for those of you that care about that sort of thing) a cinematographers delight, visually stimulating from beginning to end.

This is Canadian content with an environmental message, family ties and a sweet love story. It's been filmed and takes place in rural Nova Scotia following a photojournalist and environmental activist (Kristen Holden-Reid) who shows up unannounced on his estranged sisters doorstep. 'Jack' moves in with 'Olivia', bonds with her teenage son and then enters into a relationship with her best friend.

Before long the situation with his sister falls apart as it comes to light that he's wanted in the U.S for his part in a bombing.

The plot was good but felt vague at times as did the characters who all needed more development. I enjoyed the love story though which is bittersweet with a touching final scene that in turn explains why the movie has been filmed with so many colours and textures. Once you're aware of Jack's (condition) you understand why he sees things the way he does.06.13
