I first saw this movie about 25 years ago and was absolutely struck by
it's authentic feel. I'm about the same age as the 2 main actors, Doug
McGrath and Paul Bradley and although I was born in Ontario, I clearly
recall the tremendous influx of 18 - 25 year old men from Newfoundland
and Nova Scotia during the 60s and 70s. I worked with several of them
and as far as they were concerned, Ontario was the promised land. When

People wanted to see if there was something more and went out to find
When I first happened upon this movie, I thought I was watching a
documentary. It has the look and feel of a documentary and this effect
is reinforced by the actors who deliver their lines in a manner that
seems unrehearsed. The movie is a totally and completely accurate
portrayal of the fate that met many young male adventurers from the
