The Grand Seduction

After making the festival run last year, the charming comedy The Grand Seduction is coming to United States theaters this spring. The film is actually a remake of Seducing Doctor Lewis, an Italian film from 2004. However, it also feels like a European take on Doc Hollywood from back in 1991. The story follows a small fishing village that’s in desperate need of a doctor to not only treat the many, sometimes amusingly, afflicted residents, but also to fulfill a business contract that will keep the local factory up and running. So when a hot shot doctor (Taylor Kitsch) comes to town, the mayor (Brendan Gleeson) does all he can to impress him, sometimes with charmingly hilarious results. This looks like a real crowd-pleaser. Watch now!

Here's the new theatrical trailer for Don McKellar's The Grand Seduction from eOne:

The Grand Seduction is directed by Canadian actor-filmmaker Don McKellar (of Childstar, Last Night) from a script by Michael Dowse and Ken Scott, based on the film Seducing Doctor Lewis. When unlikely candidate and big city doctor Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch) lands in their lap for a trial residence, the townsfolk of a small fishing village rally together to charm him into staying in order to help them secure a lucrative business contract.  As the doctor’s time in the village winds to a close, acting mayor Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) has no choice but to pull out all the stops and begin The Grand Seduction. The film premiered at Toronto & Torino Film Festivals and now eOne Films releases it in limited theaters May 30th.
