THE GRAND SE­DUC­TION ★★★ Di­rected by Don McKel­lar. Star­ring Tay­lor Kitsch, Bren­dan Glee­son, Liane Bal­a­ban, Gor­don Pinsent

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

A group of in­cor­ri­gi­ble Nova Sco­tians at­tempt to hood­wink an oil company into lo­cat­ing a plant in their im­pov­er­ished vil­lage. If you’re look­ing for a Cana­dian vari­a­tion on Bill Forsyth’s Lo­cal Hero star­ring Bren­dan Glee­son, then you need search no longer. Very lit­tle that hap­pens is even re­motely plau­si­ble. But Glee­son and other, older ac­tors, man­age to make some­thing mod­estly en­ter­tain­ing out of the en­ter­prise. The ship just about avoids Twee Reef on its pas­sage to the port. 12A cert, 113 min
