La Grande Séduction - Seducing Dr. Lewis DVD - 2003 French Canadian film directed by Jean-François Pouliot. St. Marie-La-Mauderne is a tiny fishing village in what some may call the middle of nowhere in Canada. For eight years the locals have stood in line for weekly welfare checks, wearing patched sweaters and glum expressions, and remembering the good old days when the catch was good, the fishermen were proud, and life seemed a lot more magical. Then one day, a chance at salvation: a small company wants to build a factory, provided they can lure a doctor to the island. Inspired, the villagers devise a scheme to make Dr. Christopher Lewis a local. Stars Raymond Bouchard, Guy-Daniel Tremblay, Nadia Drouin, Rita Lafontaine and Roc Lafortune. 108 minutes, optional French or English subtitles. Unrated - no nudity, sex or violence, but there is one drug scene.
