Catherine Adelaide is a short motion picture about two lovers who find themselves at different points in their lives; an illustration of romance and friendship set against the backdrop of a snowy downtown St. John's night.
Oliver is a St. John's native and hopeful writer, working on a novella and days away from moving to Toronto, where he hopes to make a career. Catherine, meanwhile, is a young woman from the Toronto area who is confident with her place in life; working as a waitress at a downtown Bar & Grill, she is saving up for a life on the island-- her adopted home that has charmed her since coming for school. The film takes a snapshot in their parallel lives, noting the unspoken attractions they share for one another, but problems surface when it becomes apparent that their passion cannot last due to opposing dreams. One is looking for a life away in the city, while the other is content with a life lived by the sea.
Captured through a soft romantic lens in North America's oldest city, Catherine Adelaide will examine what it means to be a young lover on this island province, and highlight the choice that they eventually must make concerning their feelings in the face of their ambition.
Written & Directed by current Grenfell Theatre student Andrew Tremblett, this short motion picture is the sophomore effort from BlueStone BlackWood, a homegrown West-Coast production company, in affiliation with PB Productions, with generous funding from the Newfoundland Labrador Arts Council. Featuring on-screen and behind the camera talents of young professional Grenfell & CNA Alumnus, this production is a cross-island effort with shooting locations in both St John's and Corner Brook areas, featuring the talents of St Johns, Corner Brook, Gander, and Churchill Falls natives.
