MARION BRIDGE made its world premiere at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival, where it won Best First Feature. According to Director Wiebke von Carolsfeld, " I tried to keep it (MARION BRIDGE) real, organic and simple. A lot of energy was focused on illuminating emotions and on finding truth in the small moments." Starring actress Molly Parker, (MAX, CENTER OF THE WORLD, SUNSHINE) MARION BRIDGE speaks volumes about sibling and parental relationships with a beautifully realized tale of loss, healing and humor.
Agnes (Molly Parker), in the midst of a struggle to overcome her own self destructive behavior, returns to Sydney, Nova Scotia from Toronto because of the failing health of her mother Rose (Marguerite McNeil). She is met by her older sister Theresa (Rebecca Jenkins), a devout Catholic who has recently been dumped by her husband for a younger woman, and Louise (Stacy Smith), the middle child who has retreated from the outside world. Her arrival sets in motion a chain of events that allows the family to reconnect with the world and one another.
