(Canada/Great Britain, 2005, 121 minutes)

Left to her own devices in her derelict family farm after both her junkie parents die, a young orphan creates her own fantasy world. Dark, American Gothic fairytale that tries bravely to navigate the story’s ambiguous overtones, but fails to find the correct tone it would require to look like more than a misfire.
