Marion Bridge

"When Marion Bridge, a small, exquisitely acted Canadian film, is observing the psychological tensions of three grown-up sisters attending their dying mother in a small Nova Scotia town, it uncovers a complexity and depth of feeling rarely glimpsed in a family drama."
Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES
"Excellent chemistry between the three leads... a standout in the dysfunctional family genre."
Katherine Monk, VANCOUVER SUN
"..brilliant feature film debut..."
Lianne George, NATIONAL POST


Marion Bridge is the moving story of three sisters torn apart by family secrets. In the midst of struggling to overcome her self-destructive behaviour, the youngest sister, Agnes, returns home determined to confront the past in a community built on avoiding it. Her quest sets in motion a chain of events that allows the sisters each in their own way to re-connect with the world and one another. Set in post-industrial Cape Breton, Marion Bridge is a story of poignant humor and drama.
