Wow!!

16 year old Jeannie's(Carol Kane in her screen debut)brother has just come back from the army. He brings a friend named Billy along because Billy has no where to go. After a drunken night out, Billy rapes Jeannie as she sleeps on the couch. Billy and Jeannie's brother, Jimmy leave in the next morning and Jeannie is left hurt, afraid and pregnant. Once her parents find out, they blame no one but Jeannie. Her Mother begs the Father not to send Jeannie away. They let her stay but force her to marry an old man so they won't have to deal with gossip. Jeannie marries the old man and you can only feel sorry for her as you see this isn't a life she has wanted but has been made for her. Carol Kane delivers an awesome performance yet again. She blows me away every single time I see her in a movie. A lot younger here, I believe she is about 19, I still can't believe how great she was with it being one of her first films and all. I felt so bad for her through out the whole movie. Once again, mad props to Kane who without her this film wouldn't be as great as it was.

Almost authentic

At first I thought that this was another dumb Canadian film financed by my tax money. Then it occurred to me that there was quite a bit in this film that was realistic and hard hitting. Anyone born after the 1960's won't appreciate that the negative attitude of everyone to a girl getting pregnant out of wedlock portrayed in this movie was the norm in Canada during the war and into the 50's. Nobody's being hypocritical. That's the way it was.

The old men and misfits who were pressed into Canada's "Zombie Army" to guard prisoners is also authentic.

The movie is quite authentic in its portrayal of a crummy town in the Maritimes. No, it's not Ontario. The accents are all Maritime except for Ms. Kane and Ms. Case, who are too American to fit the scenery. That's not to disparage their acting which is perfect for the characters they portray. Donald Pleasance does not exaggerate his accent. That's how people talk "down east".

Where the movie goes astray is in the economy of the wartime years. There is reference to food shortages but there seems to be no shortage of Scotch and beer. Also, the store that Jeannie robs looks exactly like a Woolworth's store of the era except that the shelves are brimming with things to sell. That was not the case. Finally, Sandy doesn't seem to have any problem getting tires (unobtainable) and gasoline (rationed) during the war years.

Give this movie more than 10 minutes of attention if it comes on late night TV in your area.

small Canadian indie

It's WWII in a small working class Canadian town. Jeannie Dougall (Carol Kane) is a good girl living at home with her parents (Donald Pleasence, Doris Petrie). Her brother Jimmie comes home on furlough with military buddy Billy (Doug McGrath). After a night of drinking, Jeannie's friend rejects Billy who ends up raping her instead. Jeannie gets pregnant. Her father refuses to believe a soldier would act dishonorably. He forces her to marry his elderly drunken war buddy Sandy to maintain his honor.

This is a small Canadian indie. It's pretty good. The accent is a little tough. The production is definitely older. It's grimy and old working class. The acting from Pleasence and Petrie is terrific. Carol Kane is sadly naive and in need of a big hug. It does need more in terms of intensity. I wonder if the movie needs a scene where Jeannie begs Billy to accept his part in the pregnancy. This movie needs something to elevate the drama.
