Written and directed by Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor, this dark but ultimately upbeat comedy unfolds in a small island community whose residents are at odds over preservation versus development. Among the characters: a gay man contemplating suicide because the local paper is planning to publish names of guys seen cruising a local park; a live-and-let-live cop charged with investigating the hyped-up scandal; the cop's wife, a stressed-out real estate agent (the hilarious Sandra Oh); a single mom having an affair with him; and the mom's rebellious teenage daughter. Blending irony and compassion, the film contrasts the island's bucolic beauty with the characters' tragicomic lives, commanding attention with its intricate narrative and finely textured performances. 99 min.
