When fate sends Dr. Paul Lewis (Kitsch) their way, unemployed fisherman Murray French (Gleeson) mobilizes the town to do everything they can to convince the fast living, jazz loving, cricket playing doctor that their sleepy harbour is a paradise...

MOVIE REVIEW

The Grand Seduction, directed by Don McKellar, features a familiar actor in Brendan Gleeson playing the role of Murray French.  He is a proud but gruff down-and-out fisherman stuck in a dying Newfoundland harbor village where he and all the other down-and-out fisherman line up weekly for their welfare checks. When his wife finds a job in the nearest city, leaving him alone at home, he finally decides something needs to be done to bring life back to the community. The former mayor had struck up a conversation with a petroleum company to open a factory for recycling petroleum products.  The townspeople have no idea what this means, but it sounds better to them than sitting around all day living off welfare.  Unfortunately, to seal the deal, they are required to find a permanent doctor for their harbor, not to mention to put together a very substantial bribe.  Full movie review »
