■ Cascadia ★★ ½ — Scheming sisters, betrayal, infidelity, shopping addiction, corrupt politicians, beautiful Victoria locations, Melissa Szewczok, comeuppance!
This film as has all that … and the worst office fisticuffs scene of all time. I almost scoffed and cried out when I saw the worker-on-worker violence … but then I remembered when my wife worked for B.C. government and something eerily similar played out. Maybe a man really does staple another man’s face at the CRD? I don’t want to give away too much. The film had a hard time capturing my imagination at first, but once it got rolling, I became intrigued. Recommendation? Give the movie some time and the characters will grow on you.
