Worthwhile movie!
9 October 2017 | by bjseabrook-89531See all my reviews

The film was a huge project to undertake. The story is well worth telling, to keep an interesting and important event in Canada's history alive. It was well done, even with the timing constraints. It is, however, a story that could easily be expanded to provide a much deeper character study of the members of the Donnelly family and of other residents in the Lucan area. The only suggestion is to decrease the volume of the background music in order to hear the dialogue taking place, as it was at times, difficult to hear. Loved it!
