All My Puny Sorrows

2022 Winner 2 Canadian Screen Awards: Achievement in Editing & Music, Original Score!

Based on Miriam Toews' best-selling novel, All My Puny Sorrows unexpectedly infuses wry humor into this heart-wrenching story of two loving sisters: one a gifted pianist (Sarah Gadon) obsessed with ending her life, the other a struggling writer (Alison Pill) who, in wrestling with this decision, makes profound discoveries about herself.

"Michael McGowan’s moving adaptation of Miriam Toews’ beloved novel All My Puny Sorrows is propelled by nuanced direction, an affecting script, and a truly stellar, fearless cast." - TIFF

"Fans of the novel will enjoy a faithful adaptation of one of the best Canadian books of the last decade. As audience members watching the film, we can expect a new clarity regarding the futility of our tiny little lives." - Varsity

"McGowan’s adaptation is deeply moving, emotionally driven, and often riveting to watch. Yoli is the driving force and her emotions, riddled with anger, love, desperation, resentment, and a dose of sarcasm and dark humor, are messy and deeply complex." - ScreenRant
