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.
