Storyline

After years of stability, the lives of octogenarian couple, Craig and Irene Morrison, are slowly beginning to change. Because of changing times and regulations, they are no longer able to make a living from their small coastal New Brunswick farm. And Irene has begun to show signs of early dementia. Against the wishes of their two offspring who still reside in the area and who would like to see more standard care provided for Irene, Craig, the son of a master shipbuilder who inherited his father's building abilities, decides to mill lumber from trees on their property and with it build a more suitable, small one story house on the property in which he and Irene can live. Beginning this project with only a design in his mind, he is encouraged by friends at least to go through the regulatory process of building permits and the like. Despite being able to complete this project to more than exacting centuries old standards, Craig ends up hitting one roadblock after another in this ... Written by Huggo

Cromwell & Bujold knock it out of the park
4 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

I was easily able to empathize with this movie and especially our lead Craig Morrison (James Cromwell) as you grow older, your abilities start to slowly wane, and you want one last chance at glory. Craig's plight is much more about glory. He is fighting to keep the relationship with his wife, and avoid suggestions from his kids to put her in a home (Bujold) despite her early signs of Dementia. This movie hit me on so many emotional levels. Not only did I care about the fate of Craig & Irene, but I became truly angry at how Craig was being belittled by the bureaucracy for such a minor thing, like not following all the rules, despite that the house is perfectly safe, and Craig knows exactly what he's doing. His battle of handling his wife's slow descent into Dementia was also heart wrenching to watch. I felt the children of the Morrison's were a bit selfish at first, but as the movie went along, they grew on me, and I understood them more. Cromwell & Bujold are absolutely magnificent together, and their relationship is one of the most enjoyable I have seen in eons. It was genuine, and it didn't feel contrived in the slightest. James is an ordinary man, and one we can all sympathize with. He's a good man, and you'll be rooting for him all the way. He's a man passionate about his beliefs, and his wife. I give all the credit to James Cromwell's fantastic performance. He's always been a great character actor, but never has he shined like this. He conveyed his emotions perfectly. Geneviève Bujold is equally as good as Cromwell. She is utterly phenomenal as a woman slowly losing her way, due to dementia. I feared her, but felt for her at the same time. She's always been a great actress, and this is one that will be talked about for some time. Jonathan Potts is great as the unlikable bureaucrat.

Final Thoughts: It's just a wonderful film, and one not talked about nearly enough for my liking. As a Canadian, I am proud of how good this movie is. Any one should be able to get into it. It's a very moving film

8.7/10
