Product description

Amazon.ca

A fading New England fishing town is the setting of this gentle fable in which teen swimmer Amanda, troubled by her father's absence, skips school with some mild vandalism in mind but winds up saving a man who has jumped into the river. The man (Cocoon's Hume Cronyn) was actually just out for a swim, as he and his wife (Joan Gregson) are sea people--the politically correct term for mermaids. Amanda (Tegan Moss) gets drawn into the elderly couple's quest for colder water, enlisting the help of a schoolmate (Shawn Roberts) with a fishing boat and a little sea people history of his own. Director Vic Sarin wisely chose to forgo special effects in this charming fantasy-drama that premiered on Showtime, letting his excellent cast do the work of convincing the audience instead. The intelligent script by Wendy Biller and Christopher Hawthorne manages to avoid both over sentimentality and cynicism. The result is an old-fashioned tale inhabited by thoroughly modern teens. Although appropriate for any age, this 90-minute movie will most intrigue ages 7 and up. --Kimberly Heinrichs
