The film Bound By Sea will show Saturday, 10AM, at the Thalian Main Stage during the Cucalorus Film Festival. Guest host Pat Marriott interviewed Nate Daniel and Jack Viorel, the filmmakers and one of the stars of the locally produced movie. For more information on the film and the Cucalorus festival visit the Bound By Sea webpage on the Cucolorus website.
Based on true events and laced with wry humor, Still Mine is a heartfelt love story about an 89-year-old New Brunswicker (James Cromwell) who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his wife (Geneviève Bujold) whose memory is fading. Although Craig Morrison is using the same methods his father, a shipbuilder, taught him, times have changed. Craig quickly gets on the wrong side of an overzealous government inspector, who finds just about everything unacceptable, including the unstamped wood Craig has milled from his own trees.
