Dir: Rebecca Miller, US/Canada, 2005, 112 min. Daniel Day-Lewis, Catherine Keener, Camilla Belle, Paul Dano

Filmed on P.E.I.

“The Ballad of Jack and Rose stars Daniel Day-Lewis as Jack Slavin, an idealist who lives on the site of his abandoned island commune with his 16 year old daughter, Rose, whom he has sheltered from the influences of the outside world. However, when Jack discovers he has a fatal illness he takes steps to ensure a future for Rose and invites his girlfriend Kathleen and her teenage sons to live with them. Naturally, things don’t go according to plan and when Camilla rebels, things quickly spiral out of control. The performances are superb…. The film benefits hugely from its unusual and intriguing setting and the intelligent script… Recommended.” —Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
