Small Town Murder Songs
Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly | CANADA | 2010 | 75min
Taking something at face value can be misleading, as it is often what lies beneath that can be the most telling. SMALL TOWN MURDER SONGS, set in a small Mennonite town in Ontario, focuses on Walter (Peter Stormare), a troubled police chief still distraught from the events of a turbulent past. Walter has stripped his life of all iniquities, choosing to live the quiet life of a man devoted to his work, his wholesome girlfriend (Martha Plimpton), and his religion. However, his everyday job of writing parking tickets and pulling over horse-drawn buggies is rocked by an untimely murder, sending him and his town into a frenzy. Forced to play a significant role in the murder investigation, Walter starts to question the strength of his newfound character when he is tested by the events that unfold in the supposedly simple town. - Julia Speace
