| Excellent depiction of life in the far reaches of Northern Canada
This is an excellent movie! If you ever get the chance to see it I highly recommend it.

Ellen Burstyn's portrayal of Olive Frederickson is so good it's actually haunting. By that I mean the character will stick with you for days. Her life's experiences are quite extraordinary and will leave you thinking about them for quite a while after seeing this movie.

When you consider that it's a true story, (something I didn't know the first time I saw it until after it was over) it will move you deeply.

Buy it, rent it, borrow it or steal it. It's that good.
