Marion Bridge -- Film Description:
"Marion Bridge is the story of three sisters paralyzed 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 reconnect with the world and one another. Set in post-industrial Cape Breton, Marion Bridge is a story of poignant humour and drama. A tale of loss and healing, Marion Bridge speaks volumes about parental and sibling relationships. In a world where nothing turns out exactly the way anyone imagined it would, these three sisters learn to embrace what they've got: themselves and their love for each other."
