Stone's Throw, A

A FILM BY Camelia Frieberg

Adroitly crafted and well observed, the film shows a nascent talent behind the lens... Visually Frieberg demonstrates a fluid, unfussy style. Heat emanates from the screen...and the quality of intimacy she develops among the cast allows the camera to get up close and personal without forcing the point.

Synopsis

Set in the achingly beautiful world of rural Nova Scotia, A Stone’s Throw follows the journey of photojournalist Jack Walker, who arrives unannounced in the remote seaside town where his sister, Olivia lives a carefully constructed and insulated life with her two children. Jack, charming but guarded, is reticent about both the reason for his visit and the secrets of his recent past.
