"Based on Susan Swan's novel The Wives of Bath, the screenplay was written by Judith Thompson, a great Canadian playwright. Director Léa Pool, sensing the magnitude of Thompson's script, executed the film's mise-en-scène from a larger-than-life perspective, creating a powerful coming-of-age film with the operatic magnitude of tragedy."
