A definite "hidden gem"
11 September 2005 | by jake4974See all my reviews

This qualifies as one of my favorite films. The opening scene is a film classic and sets the tone for the stereotype shattering, searingly funny, utter humanity that almost literally oozes from this film. Amazingly it achieved this without making me mildly nauseated. There are heaping helpings of truth in this movie, all of it not sugar-coated without descending in to excessive emotional manipulation (some degree of emotional manipulation is what the film medium is about). This film actually inspired a TV series in Canada, and launched the career of Adam Beach. There are several very sensitive issues dealt with in this movie, and quite masterfully. A very intelligent and funny film. I liked it so much, I bought the company, I mean, I give it a 10.
