The Shipping News


shippingnewsTimid widower Quoyle (Kevin Spacey), his daughter and aunt (Judi Dench) move to a small Newfoundland community where he starts working as a reporter and gets to know a woman (Julianne Moore) who is nothing like his late, psychotic wife (Cate Blanchett). A Lasse Hallstrƶmified version of a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel; the shell is there and everything is perfectly respectable, even engaging for a long time, but there are no surprises, no truly gripping ingredients. It does offer chances though for the excellent cast to excel and the cinematographer to present Newfoundland in a beautifully stark light.
