Shelagh Carter’s feature Passionflower opened at Cinematheque last night. A strong story about a child coping with her mother’s mental illness, good casting (all local actors, with Darcy Fehr turning in another stunning performance as the father), and superb art direction made for a memorable experience. 1962 Winnipeg was never so believable, well probably since the films of John Paizs who was one of the mentors on the project during the time that Carter was at the Canadian Film Centre.  The film though, is all Carter’s who wrote the script from personal experience and directed the film produced by Polly Washburn.  It’s screening tonight and tomorrow. Check for more screen times.
