The Tracey Fragments (2007)

2007 The Tracey Fragments Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtStarring the wonderful Ellen Page, The Tracey Fragments is a compelling and occasionally heart-wrenching Canadian drama presented in a technically interesting fashion.

Directed by Bruce McDonald, with a screenplay written by Maureen Medved based on her stream-of-consciousness novel, the film sporadically uses multi-boxed techniques to show a multitude of teenager Tracey’s thoughts and memories simultaneously on-screen. The effect is highly interesting and in no way hinders the storyline, as may be expected.

We highly recommend this original film.


You can find more information on this English-language movie on Wikipedia and IMDb. Ignore the ridiculous IMDb rating; this is an excellent film.

As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:

  5. I was going to watch this film, but after seeing a clip, I though it’ll give me a headache from all the boxes! I might give it a watch sometime.
