Watch: trailer for Lesley Crewe’s Relative Happiness

The Halifax-based Atlantic Film Festival has released its lineup for this year’s event, which includes the Sept. 13 premiere of Relative Happiness, adapted from Lesley Crewe’s 2005 novel.

Published by Nimbus Publishing imprint Vagrant Press, Relative Happiness follows a Nova Scotian woman who runs a small-town bed and breakfast as she prepares for her sister’s wedding. Crewe co-wrote the script with director Deanne Foley, along with screenwriters Iain MacLeod and Sherry White.

And if that isn’t East Coast writerly enough, Newfoundland-born actor-author Joel Thomas Hynes also makes an appearance.
