Canada, 2005

Reason to see: sneak preview & Canadian film!

This is an excellent film, I enjoyed it from start to finish. Based on the life of French Canadian hockey player Maurice Richard this film about strength, determination and challenges. Did I mention its a drama? About hockey? With those two things going hand in hand then you know it must be Canadian, and it is. Roy Dupuis is absolutely phenomenal in the title role. I can't wait to see it again.

Shannon's Overall View:
I loved it
I will buy it
I highly reccommend it

This film made it on to my Favourite Films of 2006 list
