[MARK] CRAWFORDS CLEVER DIALOGUE AND WITTY COMEBACKS MAKE THIS ANOTHER LAUGH-OUT-LOUD COMEDY. ENTERTAIN THIS THOUGHT
The New Canadian Curling Club tells the story of a Chinese physician, a Jamaican Tim Hortons manager, a South Asian father, and a 17-year old Syrian refugee who live in a rural Canadian town. In an effort to welcome newcomers to Canada, the community decides to offer a free, Learn to Curl program. But when its organizer slips on the ice and breaks her hip, the rinks ice custodian and former champion curler Stuart MacPhail is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, Stuart has some strong opinions about immigrantsopinions he has trouble keeping to himself. What follows is the hilarious and inspiring story of a group of unlikely athletes who face off against local prejudice and become a true team.
A comedy that is funny, very funny profound and diverse and encouraging (London Fuse), The New Canadian Curling Club is a laugh-out-loud, heart-warming reminder of what it means to be Canadian.
