The movie that the woman and Caroline go to the cinema to watch in The List Film is Séraphin: Un Homme et Son Péché or Séraphin: Heart of Stone (2002). Directed by Charles Binamé, starring Pierre Lebeau, Karine Vanasse, and Roy Dupuis and won a number of Jutra Awards and the Genie Golden Reel Award. The script for the film is based on a novel by Claude-Henri Grignon, a Canadian novelist, journalist and politician who was born in Québec.
Séraphin is quintessentially Québeçois. The film is set in a small Québec community at the end of the 19th century. Due to her father’s financial hardships, Donalda is forced to marry the village miser (also the mayor) Séraphin Poudrier. In doing so she has to leave behind Alexis, the young man she truly loves. Donalda lives a life of misery and poverty with her elderly husband until she sickens and dies.
