SUNSHINE SKETCHES OF A LITTLE TOWN - (2011) 90 MINS

Based on the renowned book by Canadian author and humorist Stephen Leacock, this family-oriented TV movie tells the tale of life in Mariposa, a small, fictitious, lake-fronted town, after the turn of the 20th century. Told in whimsical and episodic fashion and centered around a teenage boy who represent the author’s younger self, the exquisite production is steeped in the nostalgia of a quieter and more gentle time. Featuring a veritable who’s who of Canadian acting talent, including Jill Hennessey and Gorden Pincent, Sunshine Sketches lives up to its promise and will illuminate those audiences to whom it is exposed.
