Rich, interesting cast of characters in a well written and directing, very moving film
13 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

So Great to see Ingrid Veninger's latest film 'Porcupine Lake'. Her years of prolific film-making have paid off and she has created a tight, interesting and moving film that is both funny, real and poignant.

The main characters explore new teen feelings and try to make sense of the confusing and sometimes dark adult relationships they see around them. This is done with great sensitivity and insight. It is not easy to convey the subtle, new emotions that teens experience but Ingrid's approach and direction worked. Apparently the 13 year old actors met for the first time when they were filmed and the freshness and authenticity shows.

The characters were unique and interesting, the relationships and plot was highly entertaining despite the tough subject matter. The acting we excellent.

The depressing homes of the dysfunctional rural families were very true to life yet there was compassion at the same time.

I highly recommend the movie to people interested in films that delve into challenging relationships and emotional situations with insight, wisdom and humour.
