| Good Movie, Great Man
Pierre Elliot Trudeau was arguably the most revolutionary, energetic, and representative Prime Minister in Canadian history. He embodied the spirit of an entire generation of Canadians. It was his passion and dedication to a just and egalitarian society that guided several generations of Canadians through some of the most difficult and defining times of our nation's past. This film, a tender sequel to CBC's triumphant 'Trudeau' is not as mainstream, but still an educational and entertaining movie experience. This film depicts the events that shaped the great Prime Minister's existence. The film revolves around the various relationships that Trudeau had with the women of his life. Another dramatic and important relationship the film portrays is his confrontational attitude towards Quebec's non-secularism of the mid-twentieth century. Trudeau believed in the separation of church and state and was a pioneer in Quebec and one of the first to stand up to totalitarian premier Maurice Duplessis. The miniseries is definitely political, but it appeals to all Canadians who are interested in learning more about their past and the great man who shaped their way of life. It serves as an educational tool for any foreigner wishing to learn more about a leader many contemporaries have compared to John F. Kennedy. It may not be perfect, but it is a loving tribute to a man who deserves nothing less.
