Add to basket STILL MINE
“Age is just an abstraction – not a straightjacket.” Craig Morrison, Still Mine.
Based on a heartfelt true story, Still Mine is an inspiring ode to love and a life of resilience. Craig Morrison (Oscar® nominee James Cromwell, The Artist) is an 89-year-old farmer living in the rural tranquillity of New Brunswick, Canada. Challenged to keep his farm going using traditional methods, he comes up against stifling opposition when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Oscar® nominee Geneviève Bujold, Anne of The Thousand Days) who is suffering the early stages of dementia.
Utilising the tried and tested methods of building taught to him by his father decades ago, Craig soon finds himself on the wrong side of an overzealous government inspector, who questions and scrutinises every minute detail of the build – instigating a series of stop-work orders which threaten to undermine the entire operation - placing the elderly couple's future in considerable jeopardy.
Exploring both the travails of companionship and the frustration of bureaucracy, Still Mine is a tender tale of togetherness and perseverance in the tradition of inspirational award winners Amour, The Straight Story and Life As A House.
