The Grand Seduction

The Grand Seduction
  • 3 stars
  • 2013
  • Canada
  • 113 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Don McKellar
  • Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Taylor Kitsch, Liane Balaban

Murray (Gleeson), an ex-fisherman, is dismayed that fishing quotas have demoralised his Newfoundland community, so he conceives a Zany Scheme to attract a petrochemical plant to the town. Charming small-town comedy in the Ealing tradition, with Gleeson in his element as the scheming hustler; odd, though, that the environmental consequences are completely uncommented upon.

Poland 1962; orphaned novice nun Sister Anna (Trzebuchowska) is about to take her vows when she finds out that she was originally named Ida and is Jewish, so she goes on a search for the truth about her parents. A thoughtful, beautifully shot but emotionally uninvolving coming-of-age story.
