Citation :
« There is no respite from exploitation and male violence for Annie except in the figure of Ruth (Tantoo Cardinal), a caring Aboriginal woman who serves as the prison den mother. [...] Despite their victimization by a harsh settler society, neither Ruth nor Annie is represented as a passive victim. Interestingly, the Ruth character does not appear in the original [Alice] Munro story, and she is reminiscent of earlier Wheeler representations of Aboriginal women, such as Augusta [in Augusta] and Rosanne and her mother, Beatrice, in Loyalties. »
