FULL SYNOPSIS

Thee adult sisters are forced to face the scars of their past as they wait at their mother's deathbed in this drama written by noted Canadian actor [[Performer~P121617~Daniel MacIvor~danielmacivor]]. Agnes ([[Performer~P220528~Molly Parker~mollyparker]]) grew up in Sydney, a small town in Nova Scotia; hoping to get away from memories of an unhappy childhood, Agnes moved to Toronto, where she found more than her share of disappointments. When Agnes receives word that her mother Rose ([[Performer~P275088~Marguerite McNeil~margueritemcneil]]) is in failing health, she returns to Sydney for the first time in years, where she's met by her sisters, Theresa ([[Performer~P35463~Rebecca Jenkins~rebeccajenkins]]), who has been turned bitter by a bad divorce, and Louise (Stacy Smith), who prefers withdrawing into herself to dealing with the outside world. As the four women attempt to make peace with one another, Agnes decides it's time they faced several unpleasant truths, including the abuse they faced at the hands of her father. The first directorial effort from [[Performer~P214704~Wiebke Von Carolsfeld~wiebkevoncarolsfeld]], Marion Bridge was screened in competition at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival as part of the "Perspective Canada" series. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
