An epic tale of survival from Canada’s distant past

Based on a true story and adapted from the Governor General’s Award-winning novel, Elle chronicles the ordeals and adventures of a young French woman deliberately marooned on a desolate island off the coast of Newfoundland in 1542. Sometimes harrowing and often funny, Elle brilliantly reinvents the beginnings of this country’s narrative through bears (both real and spirit) and the embracing of one’s environment.
