Gentle fun in light-hearted comedy
PUBLISHED: 11:00 28 August 2014
DRY wit and satire are part of the recipe being served up in Canadian comedy The Grand Seduction.
The film follows the fortunes of the Tickle Cove townspeople as they attempt to trick a doctor into becoming a permanent resident in their run-down harbour town.
In a fading fishing community on the Newfoundland coast, the mayor is trying to convince a large factory chain to set up shop there - a move that would bring in much-needed jobs.
But before they can seal the deal and save the community from financial ruin, the town must have a full-time doctor, so the community bands together and pulls out all the tricks in the book to convince the visiting doctor to stay.
The light-hearted film, suitable for families and couples, is due to be released tomorrow.
