The battle against bureaucracy is a theme that crosses international boundaries and Still Mine is a Canadian take on the struggle of the little guy. In this instance, the little guy is octogenarian Craig, played by James Cromwell (LA Confidential, The Artist) who is trying to build a new, more manageable house for his wife (beautifully played by Geneviève Bujold) who is starting to struggle with dementia.
A tale of man against the state, old values against the new and a love of the land and the family. Still Mine is a worthy first feature in our memory strand.
