    THE GRAND SEDUCTION is far too big and awkward a title for this charming small film from Canada. All around adorable with a cast to match. THE GRAND SEDUCTION breaks no new ground but totally delights with a winning tale of a small harbor in need of some help to get back on its feet. Lovely.

    A fun, if somewhat improbable yarn that's endearing and full of gentle humor, in many ways reminiscent of films like "Local Hero" and the TV series "Northern Exposure" (with a Canadian twist). As long as you're willing to suspend belief on a few key plot points, this is an enjoyable fable full of charm, magic and beautiful scenery.

    WOW. What a sleeper. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Great acting and storyline. Must see! Love the point the movie makes about the people in the community want to get off government well fare and work!

    Charming, but not seductive.

    Thanks to its cast, The Grand Seduction turns out to be, if not exactly groundbreaking, at least agreeable, comfortable fun.

    In Don McKellar's remake of "Seducing Doctor Lewis", a 2003 French-Canadian comedy, the charm feels force-fed.
