Storyline

Popular Vancouver Mayor, Dominic Da Vinci, is hosting a Canadian mayor's conference. One of the attendees is Toronto Mayor Tom Drood. Despite being considered a political lightweight (or in reality because of it), Drood is being supported by Charles and Katherine Greenborne - newspaper moguls - as a candidate for the next federal election; they tout Drood as potential Prime Ministerial material. The support of the Greenbornes, as people who control the media, is powerful. They throw a shindig for Drood, the party where they hope to get public endorsement by Da Vinci for Drood's candidacy. Following the official party, the Greenbornes - with Drood and the Greenborne's drug addict nephew, Earl, in attendance - host a more private affair complete with drugs and sex show. The next morning, Anna Navarez, one of the domestics at the party and post-party, is found dead in her bedroom in the basement of her employer, Phyllis Whiting, a friend of the Greenborne's.

This is a good movie
3 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised with this movie.

I'm quite leery of many Canadian movies and I tend to find that if a Canadian movie is rated as a 7, then I would rate it as a 5 - in other words, I notice that most Canadian movies seem to be rated 1 or two stars above where I would rate them - but this movie was good.

The first 5 or 10 minutes of the movie were a little slow, but if you can hang in there with it until after that the story becomes interesting enough to grab your attention.

And da Vinci plays his usual self. Low key, but intense.

If you liked his TV series then you might even like this movie better.
