Description

With grace, wit and impossible charm, Canadian screen icon Gordon Pinsent takes us on a journey through his 70-year career. From leaving Newfoundland in the late 1940s to Canadian classics (John and the Missus, The Rowdyman) and recent hits (Away From Her, The Shipping News), Pinsent has been a recognizable face in of many of our most treasured stories. Academy Award–winning director Brigitte Berman explores his rich and storied career in this enrapturing portrait. With the inventive use of motion-capture techniques, Berman allows Pinsent to perform as younger versions of himself, bringing the past to life in charming animated vignettes.

Critical praise:

  • Screen Creek - 3.5/5, "Incredibly candid interviews with Pinsent and his circle of friends."
  • Global News - "Pinsent is joyful, engaging and impossibly charming."
