Based on E. Annie Proulx's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Shipping News traces the unlikely tale of Quoyle, who, after the death of his estranged wife, is left grieving with his daughter Bunny. When a long lost aunt arrives at Quoyle's doorstep and convinces them to head north, his fortunes begin to change. On the coast of Newfoundland, in a place where life is as rough as the weather and secrets are as dense as the landscape, Quoyle lands a job as a reporter for a local paper. In the course of this new career, he discovers dark family mysteries and finds friendship and love with a single mother who has secret of her own. A dramatic and moving story, The Shipping News is one man's extraordinary journey of self-discovery when he returns to his ancestral home.
