Canadian commercial filmmaker Jean-François Pouliot makes his feature-length debut with the comedy La Grande Séduction (Seducing Doctor Lewis), filmed on Harrington Harbour Island in Quebec. The small fishing village of St. Marie-La-Mauderne is on a steady economic decline. The town's prayers are answered when a company decides to build a factory on the island. The only catch is, they need to recruit a full-time doctor. Local villager Germain Lesage (Canadian TV star Raymond Bouchard) spearheads a campaign to persude Montreal-based doctor Christopher Lewis (David Boutin) to live in the town of St. Marie. With not much to offer him in actuality, the small-town folk resort to an elaborate scheme in order to keep him around. Seducing Doctor Lewis won an audience award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004.
