I watched this film last night and fell in love with it. It is a beautiful portrait of the hard, poor, basic life of a small time lobster fisherman trying to make ends meet with an old house in dire need of work, an old lobster boat with a tempermental motor. The portrait includes the townspeople where the old coastal town and it's atmospohere is carefully and patiently portrayed. The lobsterman Cody Brewer ( Colin Meaney), while pulling lobster pots finds a peculiar green moss in his lobwster trap and out of curiosity puts in a can and continues his work. He has motor trouble and when reaching down to the propeller the engine starts and cuts off one of his fingers.He reaches into the water and grabs his finger and puts it in the can to take it to a hospital for possible surgery. His hands is hurting sol much he plunges it into the can with the wet moss to take some of the pain away.A bright white light occurs and he removes his hand finding the finger mended back to his hand and in perfect working condition. A miracle. This normally would be a very obsurd scene but is handled in such a manner to be accdeptable to ones mind. A series of similar miracles take place shortly with the moss and word gets out to the townspeople about it and we come to the essence of the film. With each miracle the moss gets smaller so he now suspects that he has one or two miracles left in the moss. The entire town wants to use the moss for many small personal uses but Cody refuses to let it be used and is hoping for some inspiration to tell him the proper use of the moss. Eventually after denying many temtations a boy is saved from terminal cancer when his son steals the moss to help him. The story ends with the family and Cody continuing their life as before.Read more ›

I saw this film at a friend's house, and fell in love with it! A warm, sweet family film in an age where all too many films contain violence or crude humor. My two boys (ages 5 and 7) both loved the story, and it held their attention the whole time! I bought myself a copy (which we are watching over and over again), and am giving it to my friends as gifts.

If you have children and are looking for fun, sweet non-animated movies, you will love this!

What a great film. With all of the high-tech action movies out there, this is very refreshing, down-to-earth tale that is wonderful for everyone in the family.

Colm Meaney is a wonderful Irish actor who has been outstanding is every role he has played, but "A Lobster Tale"--in which he stars--may be one of his best. It is a low-budget, delightful, uplifting story of a Down East lobsterman who finds some miracle moss, and his odyssey thereafter.

He is joined by Alberta Watson as his wife, and Jack Knight as his son; and Graham Greene gives a terrific low-key comic performance as the local sheriff who tracks down the "culprits" who steal the moss.

This is a film about life and what is truly important about it, which can be viewed and enjoyed by everyone in the family, and that is rare these days. It is light-hearted comedy at its best, and refreshingly different--with a cast that will enthrall you.

Just watched this movie with my daughter and her four year old granddaughter. Really glad we did! This is a well crafted and sweet movie with great performances. My great granddaughter wanted to watch it again as soon as it finished! Really happy we found this movie. Very highly recommended from three different generations!

I am a big fan of Graham Greene ("Dances with Wolves," "Northern Exposure," and as Slick Nikia in the PBS Tony Hillerman movies) and Colm Meaney ("The Commitments"). Plus, I love well done cultural movies (e.g. "Fargo") and this is spot on for the Down East lobstermen community. And what a lovely human story! WHAT A FIND!!!

Great family story of relationships within family members and members of the closely knit community. Sometimes funny sometimes poignant but always mysterious. Especially watch for the Native American lawman!
