In the tradition of such cute small-town comedies as Whiskey Galore, Local Hero
and Waking Ned Devine
comes this low-key romantic comedy about a restaurant owner in Newfoundland (William Hurt) who conspires with his nutty neighbor to fake a rare bird sighting in order to lure tourists to their sleepy town. The comedy is very light, and things get a tad too unrealistic by the end, but Hurt does a good job and costar Molly Parker (The Center of the World
) is quite beguiling as the object of his affection.
