THE GRAND SEDUCTION

A lie this big only works if everyone pitches in

Comedy set in the small harbor of Tickle Cove. Brendan Gleeson is Murray, a once proud fisherman who now, along with his former colleagues in Tickle Head are out of work and forced to live off welfare. Prohibited from fishing enough to make a living and the community spirit having faded a long time ago, the Mayor comes up with a dazzling plan - a giant corporation need a location to build a factory and Tickle Head could be just the right place. But there's just one problem - in order to qualify, they must have a doctor in residence. Which they don't have. When the Mayor leaves the harbour and takes a job at the airport, he fortuitously stumbles upon Paul Lewis, an American cricket fanatic and more importantly a doctor, who he convinces to do a one month stint as the local physician. To encourage Paul to commit to the job for the required 5 years by the Corporation, the townsfolk acquaint themselves with his favourite sport with hilarious consequences, tap his phone to discern his likes/dislikes and do everything in their power to make him feel at home. What ensues is an all-out seduction with Murray enthusiastically encouraging the elaborate deception that will be his only way back to an honest job and a happier way of life.

A delightful cinematic gem. - John Hanlon Reviews

So intricately plotted and unlikely that it verges on the exotic, "The Grand Seduction" is nevertheless a hoot. - Seattle Times    

The cast is superbly chosen and the specificity of the sense of place lends weight to the storyline, its exquisite, pristine beauty and its precariousness. - Beliefnet
