Angel Square is a 1990 Canadian film set in 1945 and based on the novel of the same title by Brian Doyle (many of whose books are set in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada).


In Angel Square, Wheeler deals with random street crime. Ned Beatty stars as a standard-issue husband and father in a "safe" neighbourhood. Beatty's sense of security is violated when he is brutally beaten by a youth gang. The familial spirit of Bye Bye Blues is carried over into the climax of Angel Square, with Beatty's neighbours uniting to track down his assailants.[1]



In 1991 it won 3 Genie Awards:

  • George Blondheim & Anne Wheeler for Best Original Song
  • Garrell Clark & Paul A. Sharpe for Best Overall Sound
  • Alison Grace, Gael MacLean, Anne Bakker, Debra Rurak, & Cal Shumiatcher for Best Adapted Screenplay
