One of the great treasures of Canadian stage and screen, Sheila McCarthy may be best known for starring in lighter-hearted fare like TV’s LITTLE MOSQUE ON THE PRAIRIE and I’VE HEARD THE MERMAIDS SINGING. Yet this debut feature by the Toronto team of Grayson Moore and Aidan Shipley gives her the chance to display her acting prowess in a darker, tougher role. McCarthy stars as Valerie Walker, a haunted woman who has returned home after serving years in prison for a drunk-driving accident that killed a neighbour. Though her daughters (played by Katie Boland and Grace Glowicki) hope that the family can make a new start, the secrets of the past inevitably force their way into the present. Diving deep into Moore and Shipley’s sharply written screenplay, McCarthy deftly reveals the many layers of a complex character.
“Canadian newcomers Grayson Moore and Aidan Shipley strike gold with veteran Sheila McCarthy in the lead role of Cardinals. McCarthy is masterful as the damningly self-convicted Valerie.” — Lydia Ogwang, CinemaScope
