The small harbor of Tickle Cove is in dire need of a doctor so that the town can land a contract to secure a factory which will save the town from financial ruin. Village resident Murray French (Gleeson) leads the search, and when he finds Dr. Paul Lewis (Kitsch) he employs - along with the whole town - tactics to seduce the doctor to stay permanently.Written by
Taylor Kitsch was written to die from an overdose and the citizens of Tickle Head would make a hospital named after him, but the writer wanted this to be a feel good movie and trashed the idea. See more »
When I was a boy, Tickle Head was a proud fishing harbor. Back then, people from Tickle Head were strong, dignified, brave. Their days were filled with purpose. By no means was this life for the faint of heart, for the weak or the lazy, but as I look back now, I can truly say life was a thing of beauty.

The Grand Seduction is a small tale beautifully written in the margins of the big book of life. It's character-driven and presents us with a vibrant acclamation for humanity with all the flaws that make us who we are. Kudos to my Canadian cousins...
For those here that have poo-pooed this film because of perceived flaws in the story line, I say balderdash! One of the prerequisites of watching a work of fiction is your suspension of reality. One shouldn't dissect a film looking for gaffs or other reasons to criticize, especially with one such as this with so much warmth and love for the human condition.
Although it has been said here before, I must say It's refreshing to see a low budget, independent film with quality and impact. Not one violent scene. Not one special effect. Not one swear word.
