Movie of Day: Still the water (2020) by Susan Rodgers

Three young men from a dysfunctional family background reunite in Malpeque, Prince Edward Island dredging up unresolved issues from the past. Jordie is a semi-pro hockey player who got fired from his team, presumably for fighting, and returns aimlessly to his hometown. He is the prodigal son with anger and resentment issues that have eaten away at his adult self. Jordie meets his brothers Nicky and Noah, and an ailing alcoholic father, who abused the family growing up. His brothers seem to have made more peace with their shared past, but Jordie just can’t seem to move on.
