Storyline

In 1950s Grey Rocks, Nova Scotia, a mysterious old seadog named Captain Charles Johnson comes to port and takes up residence in the inn of Kerstin Hawkins and her son, Jim. Once there, young Jim realizes that there is far more to that old sailor than meets the eye as Johnson offers to help on a school project about pirates in the region in ways Jim never imagined. Along the way, Capt. Johnson learns of the threat that a modern day pirate, the rapacious Mr. Moehner, poses and offers to help with that as well. All the while, that old sailor has his own business in that small town with a more direct link to its past that only Jim knows is possible. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Good movie, better book
21 January 2015 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie a lot, but there were some things that I thought deserved to be explained more (e.g., why did Meg have such a chip on her shoulder and why was bringing an American auto to Nova Scotia through Newfoundland considered smuggling?), so I bought and read the novel "Pirate's Passage" by William Gilkerson, upon which the movie was based.

After reading the novel I would say that the movie was inspired by, rather than based on the book, as the main characters are the same, but the plots are much different. The book gives sufficient back story for Meg for the reader to understand the chip on her shoulder. The auto does not even occur in the book. I thought that the plot of the book was far better than that of the movie, so if you liked the movie you should read the book.
