This movie is about Jack and his daughter Rose who live in an abandoned commune on an island off the East Coast. (It is supposed to be an American island but is actually part of PEI, really pretty, geographically and ecologically my ideal place.) Rose is sheltered and innocent but hitting puberty, Jack’s girlfriend and her sons move in, Jack has health issues, there is a housing development going up on their precious, wetland island… chaos ensues.
The fantastic, delicious cast includes Daniel Day-Lewis, Camilla Belle, Catharine Keener, Jason Lee and Beau Bridges. Also includes a nice soundtrack.
I cried at the end for a few reasons. Rent it if you like... Harold and Maude. It was the best movie I’ve seen in awhile.
