Shipping News, The


USA 2002, 107 minutes
Dir. Lasse Hallstrom
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama


Aroview: Hallmark slice of Miramax tragiwhimsy that follows the odyssey of lost-in-life Kevin Spacey, led by his aunt up to his family’s bleak ancestral village in Newfoundland after the death of his tearaway wife.

Following the family tree back to his ‘roots’, his assimilation into a quieter pace of life brings some calm weather, romance and more than a few troubling family skeletons breaking out of the closet. Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by E. Annie Proulx
