The New Waterford Girl

This tale was inspired by scripter Fish's high-school reunion in New Waterford, where she discovered a new breed of girl (hence, the title). It riffs off the old city mouse, country mouse fable: All that Mooney wants is to become a writer and get out of town, while city slicker Lou thinks she's found the perfect place and yearns to fit in.

Art/Foreign and Drama. 1 hr. 30 min.
Not Rated.

Starring: Liane Balaban, Mary Walsh, Tara Spencer-Nairn, Andrew McCarthy and Nicholas Campbell.
Directed by Allan Moyle.
Produced by Julia Sereny and Jennifer Kawaja.
Written by Tricia Fish.


The New York Times
"Liane Balaban, an 18-year-old from Toronto making her first film appearance in the role of Mooney, is like an angrier, more angular Winona Rider."

"This low-budget Canadian independent ends up being a nice breeze on the cinematic landscape -- not overpowering, but gentle and drifting, like the kind that wafts in from the shore."
