Dramatic Feature 90
with Marie-Helene Cousineau
Angelique’s Isle is a harrowing tale of perseverance and survival that unfolds during the great copper rush of 1845, when newlyweds ANGELIQUE, a young Ojibway and CHARLIE, her voyageur husband, are left stranded throughout a brutal winter on Lake Superior’s Isle Royale where Angelique is ultimately forced to face her inner demons and beliefs as the unbelievably beautiful, yet treacherous wilderness threatens to claim her.
This is Michelle’s first narrative feature film, which she co-directed with Marie-Helene Cousineau. It is set for release in the fall of 2018. “Angelique’s Isle” was selected as one of three Canadian film projects to receive the inaugural CBC Breaking Barriers Film funding. It was adapted into a screenplay, based on the book “Angelique Abandoned” by James R. Stevens.
