The film Seducing Dr. Lewis focuses on a Canadian fishing village where a new factory promises to restore prosperity. But developers won't commit to the project unless the town finds a physician. First-time director Jean-Francois Pouliot makes the most of the town's colorful characters. Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan offers a review.
