Marion Bridge is a 2002 Canadian film directed by Wiebke von Carolsfeld. It won the award for Best Canadian First Feature Film at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival. The film was based on a play by Daniel MacIvor.[1] The film is also noted as Ellen Page's first performance in a feature film.


Agnes (Molly Parker), in the midst of a struggle to overcome her own self-destructive behaviour, returns to Sydney, Nova Scotia from Toronto, Ontario because of the failing health of her mother Rose (Marguerite McNeil). She is met by her older sister Theresa (Rebecca Jenkins), a devout Catholic who has recently been dumped by her husband for a younger woman, and Louise (Stacy Smith), the middle child who has retreated from the outside world. Her arrival sets in motion a chain of events that allows the family to reconnect with the world and one another.
