Star(s): James Cromwell, Geneviève Bujold, Campbell Scott

Synopsis:

Craig (Cromwell) and his beloved wife Irene (Bujold) share an idyllic life in rural New
Brunswick. But when Irene’s health begins to fail, Craig is forced into conflict with a
pesky government inspector who refuses to let him build a new home that will be more
suitable for Irene. Stubborn and used to doing things for himself, Craig decides to put his
carpentry skills to use in spite of the inspector’s efforts to shut him down. As a showdown
becomes imminent, Craig also struggles to cope with the unmistakable deterioration of
his beloved wife’s memory, and her diminishing ability to manage on her own.

Based on true events, Still Mine is an affecting love story and a funny tale about the battle between old and new ways of doing things.

Still Mine was nominated for seven Canadian Screen Awards, winning for Best Actor, and was named by TIFF as one of Canada’s top ten films of the year.

“A small marvel of a film.”
— Peter Howell, Toronto Star
