[REQ] Babyface (1998)

Hi guys, unfortunately I can't find much information about this movie anywhere but the description on IMDB is very intriguing:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0147867/

I have looked extensively for any supporting media and have been unsuccessful - maybe one of you more experienced researchers may get a hit?

NYT wrote:Toronto TV scripter and stage director Jack Blum made his feature directorial debut with this Canadian family psychological drama. Blond 13-year-old Lisa (Elisabeth Rosen), who flirts with the school busdriver, lives with the sister of her mother Margaret (Lenore Zann), a boozing, man-chasing laundromat worker. Margaret begins an affair with quiet Jim (James Gallanders) about the time Lisa moves back into the house. After Jim makes out with Lisa, he tries but fails to dump Margaret, and the triangle soon turns explosive. Shown in the Directors Fortnight section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

I found several sites that said you could stream or download the film from them but I'm leery about that because there are a lot of rip-offs.

I think it is impossible to obtain tbh which is a shame as it looks like it has real potential for coming-of-age
