The Grand Seduction

Watch Now

The tiny cod outpost of Tickle Head is set for financial savior if they can secure an oil platform service base. Their odds are slim as a town doctor is needed to land the contract and they’ve been looking for eight years. After the mayor skips town, resident Murray French takes it upon himself to find his village a doctor.

The Grand Seduction premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. The film went on to win Best Feature Film at the Directors Guild of Canada Awards, and was nominated for Best Motion Picture at the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards.

RogerEbert.com described the film as "graceful and sweet and wise where it counts."

The New York Times called The Grand Seduction "adorable."

The Toronto Star highlighted its comforting tone, noting "[it's] the movie equivalent of a warm blanket."
