For its quiet, low-key story, A Lobster Tale travels into a sphere of domestic life rarely glimpsed in contemporary cinema - that of small-town Americana. Colm Meaney stars as Cody Brewer, a Maine lobsterman who sinks into an economic mire when faced with a terrible catch day after day, week after week. His waitress wife also struggles to stay afloat, and his son must fend off against a bully on a regular basis. Then, into this cradle of banal American beauty, an incredible event occurs: a strange, otherworldly moss turns up in one of Cody's nets - a moss with the ability to perform miracles. Though initially its presence causes problems and strain for the Brewer clan, it ultimately demonstrates its ability to not only improve their lives, but the lives of nearly everyone in the hamlet. Alberta Watson (Irish Eyes) and Graham Greene (Northern Exposure) co-star. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Its nice to see independant movies that have a good story line and can be watch by the entire family....This one was enjoyable
Colm Meaney and Graham Greene, two fine character actors, give standout performances as lobsterman and police chief in a small Maine town. Their scenes--separately and together--are the best parts of this movie, which otherwise would get too hokey with its "magic moss" story.
First of all, A Lobster Tale was definitely more than I expected. I hadn't hear much about the movie, so was not expecting an amazing movie but I ended up getting one. A Lobster Tale was a great change away from those typical romantic comedy or other family movies. This family movie really was enjoyable to watch with my family and I encourage anyone to go watch this movie. It's most definitely worth your time!
