description

Canadian filmmaking icon Bruce McDonald (HARD CORE LOGO,PONTYPOOL) returns to the big screen with 'THE HUSBAND', an emotionally wrenching familial drama dealing with McDonald’s recurring twin themes of love and heartbreak.

After his wife, a teacher, lands a jail sentence for sleeping with one of her underage students, nebbish and bespectacled everyman Henry (Maxwell McCabe-Lokos) is left to pick up the pieces of their broken marriage, including the care of their 18-month-old infant son. While trying to juggle the twin stresses of single parenthood and a busy career, Henry is forced to contend with the fissures in his marriage and the fallout from his wife’s criminal trespasses.

'The Husband' reunites McDonald with McCabe-Lokos (THE TRACEY FRAGMENT) and Stephen McHattie (PONTYPOOL) in a modern fable that puts a touching and heartbreaking twist on the tale of the cuckolded husband.
