Overview

Canadian filmmaker Scott Smith directs the black comedy Falling Angels, based on the novel by Barbara Gowdy and adapted for the screen by poet and author Esta Spalding. Set in the late '60s and filmed on-location in Saskatchewan, this dark family drama focuses on the three teenaged daughters of the Field household. Callum Keith Rennie plays Jim Field, the loud-mouthed, domineering patriarch who has intimidated his wife Mary Miranda Richardson into a catatonic state of alcoholism and depression. Norma Monté Gagné is the oldest, most responsible daughter; she is overburdened and preoccupied by events from the past. Middle child Lou Katharine Isabelle chooses the rebellious path in order to escape her father's unreasonable demands. Youngest daughter Sandy Kristin Adams aspires to maximum femininity, engaging in an affair with an older, married man Mark McKinney in the process. Falling Angels was shown at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival.
