Suspicious River

Réalisé par Lynne Stopkewich
Canada, 2000 (fiction, 92 minutes, couleurs, anglais)

Description du film [en anglais] :
« Leila Murray (Molly Parker) works as a receptionist at a small-town motel. For the same price of a room, Leila offers herself to the men who pass through—she can neither understand nor explain why she keeps doing this. Hiding her money away, she claims to be saving for something, something that shimmers beyond the horizon, but whether beautiful or terrible she can't tell. [...] Delving into difficult subject matter, director Lynne Stopkewich interrogates the compulsions that drive us and examines the choices we have, or think we have. Leaving behind her family, co-workers, and a young girl she has befriended, Leila's past and future collide in a crash course with destiny. Honest and compelling, Suspicious River is disturbing in its frank assessment of violence and self-destruction. »

Notes sur Suspicious River


Citation de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« I felt that in creating a filmic translation of [the novel] Suspicious River, less would be way more. I couldn't attempt a literal translation because it would be almost unwatchable. »
-- Lynne Stopkewich (source)

Citations sur Suspicious River [en anglais]

« Based on the story by Laura Kasischke, Suspicious River is the kind of work that would seem to defy a filmed approach. The fact that it works as well as it does is a testament to [Lynne] Stopkewich's talent for navigating the lumps beneath the carpet, and [Molly] Parker's ability to look alive and dead in the same frame. »
-- Katherine Monk (source)

« In Suspicious River, she de-objectifies prostitution and controversially introduces it as a middle-class 'problem' while presenting it as a multivariant and contradictory escapism. »
-- Kalli Paakspuu (source)
