A big city lawyer is prompted to undergo a 'seachange' with her children and becomes the magistrate at the small coastal town of Pearl Bay, where the family comes to love its people and the quality time with each other.
Laura's mother, June, arrives in town during a geriatric traffic crime spree. June's suspiciously sudden appearance is more of an inconvenience than a pleasure for Laura, who is too caught up in her ...
When my "in" show "The Bill" was suddenly replaced I thought to myself "I might as well give this a go" and as someone already testified, I was instantly addicted. After the first 2 episodes I could not get out of my mind the Northern Exposure feel it had. I was thus please to find another comment that expressed a similar thought. It simple, beautiful and full of laughters as well as having serious and sad moments. It's different and unhurried. The quotes on the main page do tell you a little about the pace of this work. Yes well done you guys who brought it to us you deserve, me, remembering your names... but that's another story, and I appologise about it,just the same I mentioned your existence! Perhaps one thing that got me on the first place was Sigrid Thornton casting. I always admired her and certainly had plenty to admire in her "Laura" character here. But as said by many, everyone is such an important part of it that it would be quite unfair to single any of them out. When I first googled the net to learn more about Sea Change, it did not bring IMDb in the search and I was a little sad about it as this site is my favourite in regard of entertainment and was looking forward for others' thought about it. But using S. Thornton did the trick as she's part of the big movie community, what a relief! I wonder how it would fare in other languages, as I feel it deserves a wider audience. I don't like giving rating but gave 8 as there are heavier things around but really 10 was in my mind all the time!
