Drawing Home

As you know, the Canadian Rockies have rarely played themselves… until now!  In 2017 a new film was released that features the home-grown story of Peter and Catherine Whyte. It’s now available to rent on iTunes. For a sneak preview, you can watch the trailer.

“Boston in the 1920s. A young East Coast debutante is dating the most eligible bachelor in the world, John D. Rockefeller III. Her future seems set: a dream life in the upper echelons of society.

But when she least expects it, she meets a young painter from one of the most beautiful places on Earth, the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Their worlds are polar opposites.

As their attraction turns their lives upside down, they soon face a universal question: Can you find ‘home’ in another person? Inspired by a true story.”
