2009. Canada. Written and directed by Sherry White. With Mary Walsh, Meghan Greeley, Cheryl Wells, Joel Thomas Hynes, Kristin Booth. Mitsy, a teenager enduring a hardscrabble adolescence with her grandmother, discovers a dog she wants to love; contemplates sex with a local boy; and, despite her grandmother’s wish never to see her own daughter again, hopes her estranged mother will return to Newfoundland. Be careful what you wish for. White’s debut film sensitively illuminates the confusion of youth and the dramatic collision of three generations of women. 94 min.
