The Grand Seduction

"We have one chance at this, let's not mess it up." Kick off the day with this trailer for Don McKellar's The Grand Seduction, a remake of an Audience Award winner at Sundance 2004, the film titled Seducing Doctor Lewis, this new version stars Brendan Gleeson & Taylor Kitsch. The plot involves a small town that needs a resident doctor to get a contract for a new manufacturing plant, so they try to seduce one (a "fast living, jazz loving, cricket playing doctor") that comes to visit, played this time by Kitsch. Of course, hilarity and goofy antics ensue, but it looks like a charming, enjoyably fun time at the movies. Give it a look.

Here's the first trailer for Don McKellar's The Grand Seduction, found via The Film Stage on YouTube:

The only hope for the tiny outport of Tickle Head is a new Petrochemical plant, but in order to qualify for the bid they need to prove they have a resident doctor. When fate sends Dr. Paul Lewis (Kitsch) their way, unemployed fisherman, Murray French (Gleeson) mobilizes the town to do everything they can to convince the fast living, jazz loving, cricket playing doctor that their sleepy harbour is a paradise tailor-made just for him. The film premiered at Toronto & Torino Film Festivals last year. The Grand Seduction is directed by Canadian actor-filmmaker Don McKellar (of Childstar, Last Night) from a script by Michael Dowse and Ken Scott. This is a remake of Seducing Doctor Lewis. The film opens in Canada in May, but no US date yet.

    And the cath is ... the doctor is not a doctor? But they like him so much it's a happy end after all?
