Crackie is a gritty drama about a young girl from a small town who dreams of bettering herself.
It’s a universal story, this time around set in Conception Bay, N.L. Director Sherry White has put together a harrowing portrait of troubled home life buoyed by strong performances from This Hour Has 22 Minutes vet Mary Walsh and newcomer Meghan Greeley.
It’s an uncompromising look at three generations of dysfunction that even at it’s most grim offers a glimmer of hope.
