Movie Info

Canadian director Stephen Reynolds spins this coming-of-age drama about being afraid and Catholic in Newfoundland. Nine-year-old Draper Doyle (Jordan Harvey) suffers from nightmares of a giant hockey puck plunging from the sky after his hockey-obsessed father commits suicide. Even worse, he suffers from a deep anxiety about the opposite sex in the form of the "Momataur," a half elk, half-naked mom roaming the nether corners of his subconscious. Though the boy's hippie uncle (Pete Postlethwaite) and his TV-loving sister also live with him, Draper's waking world is dominated by his extremely Catholic aunt. The Divine Ryans was screened at the 1999 Vancouver Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
