Quote about Love That Boy

"Both Parsley Days and Love That Boy were shot in Halifax. Even though the city is not named in either film, both traverse an urban landscape instantly recognizable as Haligonian to those familiar with the city. As much as Dorfman exploits Halifax's distinctive vernacular architecture to ground her characters in the everyday lived space of the Martime city, she also captures the bohemian feel of the place, with her young characters orbiting around the city's university, music, and arts scenes."
