About the Film:
Death cast its shadow twice on Jessie (Maddie Phillips). When she was six, she narrowly survived a fall from a third story balcony at a friend’s birthday. In her teens, she suffers survivor’s guilt after the suicide of her younger brother. She’s haunted by visions and flashbacks. Her psychiatrist’s white chair appears blood-red to her. She moves listlessly through school, and is unreceptive to the attention of a boy (Rory J. Saper) she’s crushed on for years. Then, her traumatized world receives a shake when she reluctantly agrees to a request by a famous author, Veronica Guest (Sheila McCarthy), to tutor a boy in her care in math. The textbooks are from the 1940s and the boy, Tommy, (Ryan Grantham) claims to be from the 1950s, a figment of Veronica’s imagination come to life and living a permanent boyhood.
Away from school and the bungalow world of her neighbourhood (actually the film’s Winnipeg location site), Jessie finds a kind of solace in her afternoons with Tommy. Tommy, in turn, shares his feelings about her with his only other friend, Jasper (Eric McCormack), a debonair detective and man of international intrigue who is also a literary creation of Veronica’s.
Secrets lie behind the existence of Tommy and Jasper, and Jessie is keen to discover them, even as Tommy becomes a surrogate brother for the bereft, but healing, teen.
This is the unusual setting of Considering Love & Other Magic, a sarcastic yet touching, family movie created by Calgary filmmaker, David Schultz, known for his earlier coming-of-age features, Jet Boy, Rufus and 45 R.P.M.
