Apr. 18th, 2007 07:30 pm PBiFF presents "A Lobster Tale"
"A Lobster Tale" is the most quirky and fun movie in the festival. Colm Meaney portrays Cody, a lobster man on bad times. His wife works as a waitress, they live on the wrong side of the island and his son is pestered by a rich bully. While pulling up another empty lobster trap, Cody encounters a moss that performs miracles. Of course, members of the community would like to use the miracle moss for their own personal salvation.
"A Lobster Tale" thrives on Meaney’s low key performance as Cody. The man is physically weather beaten but maintains a spiritual dignity, especially in scenes with his wife. This spiritual dignity transforms and educates his son on the importance of the Golden Rule and loving one’s enemies. Graham Greene has fun as customer of Dunk ‘n Donuts who moonlights as the town sheriff.
