Editorial Reviews

Life in a small never seemed easy, but for Mitsy (Meghan Greeley) it is especially rough. Abandoned by her crack-addicted mother (Cheryl Mills), Mitsy is left to be brought up by her temperamental grandmother, Bride (Mary Walsh), who has good intentions but is harshly overbearing. Mitsy's dreams of becoming a hairdresser, but her current emotional well-being revolves around a small dog named Sparky, an unwanted canine that she becomes very attached to. After Bride agrees to let Mitsy keep the dog, the teen tries desperately to give Sparky a comfortable home . But Mitsy's life is shaken once more when her troubled mother returns home. Mitsy is thrilled to have her mother home again, but Bride wants nothing to do with her deadbeat daughter. The constant turmoil and conflict has created a total dysfunctional family. At the same time, Mitsy has discovered her emerging sexuality and is developing a crush on a young man who has no future. For Mitsy it's a question of how do you hold onto love and hope when you're surrounded by hopelessness?

This was such a good movie so sad .

It's a heartbreaking story that seems as if the writer really must have experienced some real low times.

Set in the Canadian territory of Newfoundland and Labrador, most of what's novel about this movie's story is the setting.

Mitsy is a young woman trying to make her way to adulthood from being raised by her grandmother after her mother abandoned her as a child.

Crackie is the much-neglected dog that Mitsy adopts from the man she thinks of as her boyfriend. Mitsy has plenty of love to give to the dog, but doesn't know much about training, especially an adult dog who has been ignored his whole life.

Mitsy has also received a student loan to help her pay for her cosmotology classes, but has trouble restricting her use of the money for tuition and class supplies.

Most of the movie is a study in all the various ways Mitsy, her grandmother, and for that matter most of those closest to her, go through life dealing with one difficult situation after another, making poor (but generally understandable) choices. It's a bit like watching a horror film and being helpless to warn the characters that, no, splitting up and wandering around separately is _not_ the best idea when there's a terror eating people.

In the end, the characters have simply gotten a little further on in their lives. They've made progress in some ways, lost footing in others. Ultimately, we wind up caring about Mitsy and her grandmother mainly because they are doing the best they can, and not because they've made some great breakthrough. Their main redeeming quality is their love for each other and a willingness to eventually make up with each other when things have been going badly.

There's something familiar about a story of poor folks scraping by, dealing with everyday problems. But if you like your stories told with strong regional coloring (oops..."colouring" :) ), with plot developments real enough that one suspects there's a fair amount of personal experience in the writing, this is a good movie to check out.

A very good character study movie. Some really sad scenes with the dog and with the girl and her family and her supposed"boyfriend" at least in her mind. It's a heartbreaking story that seems as if the writer really must have experienced some real low times. Its about love,struggle,getting by no matter what, doing what we have to do to get by, it's a good movie but if you don't like sad depressing movies than this movie isn't for you.Personally I can relate to movies about struggle,hardship and strife so I found this film touching and very real. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that likes a good down to earth movie without the fairytale ending.

Good movie. Deep - Intriguing. Realistic. Excellent "life is a bitch" depiction. Very sad. Well acted. My only complaint is that a good one third of the movie was too dark to see. I mean, I'm all for atmosphere in filming - but this was a little over the top dark. Really I feel pretty sad having just watched it. It got to me.

Requires a patient, thoughtful viewer to appreciate, IMO, in this era of shoot-'em-up, chases, and CGI. A real, old fashioned story here, where past demons slowly awaken-- and must be struggled with, though with the inevitable sense that a stalemate or pyrrhic victory must suffice. In the end, Mitzi's future looks only marginally brighter than before, and she pays dearly to purchase even this faint glimmer of hope.

I hesitate to give away any plot, as it unfolds in such a pleasingly unflinching way. However, I will say those who criticize the role of the dog in the movie really missed the point. The dog isn't a *dog*. He is Mitzi's sentimentality, her capacity for gentility, her softness, and her naivete. Think about what happens at the same point in the movie. Recall her interactions with the dog at other points, and their context. The dog is a metaphor.
