Maria Chapdelaine

  Sébastien Pilote

  Canada     158 minutes


In the early 1900s, deep in the Quebec wilderness, Maria Chapdelaine, the teenage daughter of a farmer, must decide her future. Life as she knows it is full of hard-work and isolation but also immense natural beauty. As suitors begin to line up for her hand in marriage, Maria considers her station and weighs the promise of moving to the city against the familiarity of her world of rugged solitude. Lyrically adapted from Louis Hémon’s 1913 romance novel of the same name, Maria Chapdelaine chronicles an idyllic Canadian homestead far from the trappings of society. A sweeping, impeccably photographed epic of staggering scope that taps into the seasonal rhythms of a life in the wild.
