Directed by Heather Young
2019, Canada, 84 min

In one of the most auspicious debut features at TIFF, Heather Young further establishes herself as one of her country’s most promising filmmakers. Brilliantly fusing documentary and fiction techniques, Young crafts a bold, distinct visual aesthetic. Donna (Shan MacDonald), a woman in her sixties, feels isolated. She lives alone, estranged from her daughter. Sentenced to community service at a local animal shelter after an impaired-driving conviction, she ends up taking home an elderly dog. The new-found companionship eases her loneliness, and to fill the void in her life further, Donna keeps adopting pets.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival is generously sponsored by TIFF and IATSE 856.

     

Reviews

A brave work… so quiet and still and contemplative. The film is also compassionate.  Donna is a woman with a lot of love to give, but with no recipient in sight, she tries to fill a void.
– Hillary Butler, Live for Films
Quietly shattering... MacDonald, a non-professional actor making a devastating debut…lets us feel every moment of Donna’s empathy for the creatures in her care.
– Norm Wilner, NOW Weekly
