Wilby Wonderful 2004

     Wilby is located in the Canadian Maritimes and Wilby is the name of the main town on the island.  There are two types of people who live on Wilby, the islanders, people who were born there and the mainlanders.  Dan’s marriage has just collapsed, Buddy and Carol are wondering what has happened to their marriage, Sandra and her daughter Emily are struggling with their relationship.  This is a day in the lives of some of the residents.
      Very slow paced and spread out with several unrelated plots.  This is just mildly entertaining and a lot of the background of the situations is left out.  2 ½* (This movie is so-so)

99 min, Drama directed by Daniel MacIvor with Maury Chaykin, Paul Gross, Rebecca Jenkins, Daniel MacIvor, Sandra Oh, Callum Keith Rennie, Kathryn MacLellan, Ellen Page.

Note:  Blockbuster 2 ½*, imdb 6.7 out of 10, 71% critic 63% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
