Overview
Academy Award®-winning stars Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, Best Actor*) and Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love, Best Supporting Actress†) join talents with Julianne Moore (Hannibal) and Cate Blanchett (The Lord Of The Rings) in this deeply moving motion picture from the director of Chocolat and The Cider House Rules! After tragedy strikes, Quoyle (Spacey) moves with his daughter from upstate New York to his ancestral home in a small Newfoundland fishing village. With a job at the local newspaper and a developing romance with a woman (Moore) who lives with her own demons, Quoyle is transformed by this place of magic, beauty and hardship. In a compelling story based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Quoyle's past melds with his present in an inspirational journey of self-discovery and second chances.
