Synopsis: Based on E. Annie Proulx's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Shipping News traces the unlikely tale of Quoyle, who, after the death of his estranged wife, is left grieving with his daughter Bunny. When a long lost aunt arrives at Quoyle's doorstep and convinces them to head north, his fortunes begin to change. On the coast of Newfoundland, in a place where life is as rough as the weather and secrets are as dense as the landscape, Quoyle lands a job as a reporter for a local paper. In the course of this new career, he discovers dark family mysteries and finds friendship and love with a single mother who has secret of her own. A dramatic and moving story, The Shipping News is one man's extraordinary journey of self-discovery when he returns to his ancestral home.

About the Author: Screenwriter Robert Nelson Jacobs grew up in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Yale University, where he received the Curtis Literary Prize for his short fiction, and he later earned a master's degree from Iowa Writers' Workshop. His script for the film Chocolat was honored with an Academy Award nomination for best adapted screenplay.
