The Shipping News (Special Edition)
Synopsis: After tragedy strikes, Quoyle (Spacey), a hapless, lonely upstate New Yorker decides to move he and his daughter to his ancestral home in Newfoundland. In the small fishing village of Killick-Claw, Quoyle secures a job as a reporter at the local newspaper. With each article he writes, Quoyle's sense of this quirky community sharpens, along with his sense of himself. Gradually, a romance develops with Wavey (Moore), a woman who lives with her own personal demons. As his new life unfolds in Newfoundland - a place of magic, uncompromising beauty and hardship - his past melds with his present and Quoyle is transformed.
