Marie Clements’ one-hundred-year saga of the lives of an indigenous family in Canada is a work of art, transcendent and essential. Grace Dove is Aline, stolen from her family by the government and placed in a residential home run by sadistic nuns and priests, a fate all too common in our history. Aline persists and thrives, as an example of fearlessness and will that gives life meaning. Dove’s performance is deep and as she told 'What She Said’ Anne Brodie, personal.
