E. Annie Proulx's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel makes the inevitable transition to the big screen. Despite his lack of resemblence to Proulx's literary loser, Kevin Spacey does a fine job as a single father who moves back to his ancestral homeland in Newfoundland and learns to live again. Director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, The Cider House Rules) captures the beautiful, harsh climate of Eastern Canada and does subtle work with his fine cast (including Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett and Jullianne Moore). Unfortunately, the script fails to electrify the rather passive story. 111 minutes
