lack of emotional acting
6 January 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Sarah Lepage is a serious competitive runner but likes little else. She is striving to get into McGill University and live in Montreal. Her mother dismisses her dream due to a lack of money. Her coworker friend Antoine Breton tells her about government grants for married couple and proposes a marriage of convenience. Eventually, she agrees but various life complications continue to intrude.

The girl's biggest assets may be her big, brown eyes. She doesn't give much acting range although her character has a narrow emotional range. Her whole demeanor is a shrug of the shoulders. The film is a bit slow with some 'nothing' scenes. Even when the character is challenged with emotional minefields, she does little with it. She's almost on the spectrum. It would be more compelling if she is. This is not just being subtle. It's really flat.
