Great movie about self discovery, family and a great community

Great movie about self discovery, family and a great community

The Shipping News

With the star-studded cast of Kevin Spacey, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchette and Julianne Moore, my first thought before it began was “how could I go wrong with this one?”

I settled in and was delighted throughout this hidden gem to find this emotionally typifying story to be all that I expected and more.

Watching a broken, abused man find himself  on this wonderful journey of starting life over with his young daughter in East-Coast Canada Newfoundland, enraptured me from the captivating start right to the end.

Strewn with pockets of true East-Coast Canadian culture, this movie weaves a beautiful story that touches your heart and inspires the watcher to self-examine their own world.

The scenery is charming and the conversation speckled with depth as well as humour. This is a great one.. you can’t go wrong with it.
