Feature Film Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town

Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town uniquely blends fact with fiction; Stephen Leacock's own life with his literary creation. The elder Stephen Leacock (Gordon Pinsent) is both the narrator of the film and a wry, ghost-like presence in it. His boyhood self, Stephen Leacock (Owen Best) at age 14, and his real parents – Agnes (Jill Hennessy) and Peter (Rick Roberts) – and family are protagonists in this coming of age story, interacting with the wonderful fictional characters who inhabit Leacock's masterpiece.
