Synopsis

In his first lead role after decades of playing supporting characters, James Cromwell gives a tour de force performance in STILL MINE, an exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years. Based on true events and laced with wry humor, STILL MINE tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Academy Award® nominee Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Academy Award® nominee Genevieve Bujold).

Married for six decades, Craig and Irene have raised seven children together and are still in love and very happy together, both physically and emotionally. But lately Irene's health has begun to fade. Not only is Craig worried, so too are their son John (Rick Roberts) and daughter Ruth (Julie Stewart), who live nearby. But neither Craig nor Irene is going to listen to the children's talk about leaving the farm and moving into town, let alone a retirement home.

But with their house needing serious repairs and the stairs becoming a challenge, it's only a matter of time before it will become unsuitable. Craig has always provided for his family by working his land, and sees no reason to stop now. Craig decides to build a new house himself. He even has the perfect spot on his own land, which overlooks the picturesque bay. As Craig points out, on a clear day, you can see half the county. John and Ruth are concerned that it's all too much for their father. Craig's friend Chester (George R. Robertson) also tells Craig that times have changed and that Craig will need a permit.

Craig quickly gets on the wrong side of an overzealous building inspector (Jonathan Potts), who finds just about everything unacceptable, including the unstamped wood Craig has milled from his own trees. Even with the help of his lawyer Gary Fulton (Campbell Scott), who has advised Craig for over 25 years, and his grandson Jeff (Zachary Bennett), who helps him draw up the plans, nothing seems to satisfy the inspector. As Irene becomes increasingly ill -- and amidst a series of stop-work orders -- Craig races to finish the house. With the stress beginning to take its toll, Craig gets two life-changing calls...
