Keith, who has never been off the rock, goes on a dark journey to find her, and also ends up finding himself in the process. Written by
This film is an engaging coming-of-age story based upon Newfoundland author Joel Hynes' first novel of the same name. The film features spot-on performances by everyone, including a stand-out performance by the author, in the central role. Joel Hynes was at the screening I attended in Halifax, where some of the film was shot. During the Q&A, he told us that he is pleased with the adaptation. Joel writes beautifully and conveys a tremendous sense of realism. He is also a very sensitive and expressive actor with great screen presence, and is an actor who is not afraid to "go there". It is my sincere hope that Joel Hynes gains greater exposure and following for this and future work. I look forward to repeated viewings of this film.
