Lesbian widowhood, rebound relationships, single parenthood, abortion clinic violence, preteen angst, reproductive technology politics — all pretty dramatic stuff for a feature film, and indeed, Finn's Girl would be right at home on Lifetime as a movie of the week. Yet Canadian filmmakers Dominique Cardona and Laurie Colbert, best known for their documentaries (Thank God I'm a Lesbian, My Feminism), are to be commended for having a larger vision for this film, which was written by Colbert and has been screening at various LGBT film festivals this summer. Lesbian stories with depth and real-world issues need not be confined to the small screen.
Finn (Brooke Johnson, The Sweet Hereafter) is Dr. Finn Jeffries, a white, 40-something, salt-and-pepper-haired, motorcycle-riding reproductive specialist who takes over the operation of her partner Nancy's abortion clinic in Toronto after her death from breast cancer a year ago. Finn's girl is Zelly (Maya Ritter, Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front), an 11-year-old who's been (understandably) acting out since her mother's death. She smokes Finn's marijuana with her friends Eve (Chantel Cole) and Max (Andrew Chalmers, A Home at the End of the World), shoplifts skater and sex magazines, and rarely lets an opportunity to sarcastically sass Finn go by.

Couple of choices here........this was grabbed from Usenet & the feeble audio corrected

Like this post to see ed2k links  [701.08 Mb]

Also on emule. Complete sources but I can't verify.

There is also another 701mb version on offer but with no complete sources & inaudible audio (this was the file for my re-encode). Best avoided.

Enjoy!

Thanks loverboy.

I grabbed this (from the same "[Lgbt] Finn's Girl-TBMs.avi" link as you gave) last week when the DVD was released but hadn't had time to check it out. So I can confirm the link is good. And sampling parts of the movie the audio volume is a bit lower than normal but on my computer it's still quite watchable.

It's the other file I didn't post the link to that has the problem audio. (I believe it's a VOMiT
release with surprisingly a sharethefiles tag.) To give you an idea how dire the audio was I
needed to crank the volume up by 1600% to achive an acceptable level !!!
This is well worth watching.........I like movies with lippy youngsters :)

Thanks for another good one, loverboy. :) I like sassy kids too, though only in the movies where you can turn them off. LOL

How did you do that? My VLC only goes up 400%. I could use the extra boost on a few of the other movies I've got.

I'd also like some form of compression. I hate movies where I have to turn to volume up to listen to the quiet dialogue, then hurriedly turn the volume back down when some special effects cause plaster to start falling from my ceiling.

I know of no media player that will increase volume by that amount, hence the need to
re-encode. Although VirtualDub has no support for audio filters there is the facility to adjust
volume in audio full processing mode. It's then best to compress to about the same audio
codec & settings to keep the filesize roughly the same. This is what I did with my re-encode,
but in this case leaving the video stream untouched.
For more advanced audio manipulation I use Goldwave, a powerful audio editor with many
filters. There is certainly scope for flattening the audio stream to even out the highs & lows
& save your ceiling :) I usually then save as mpeg3 44000/128kbs & import the audio track
into VirtualDub. This appears to give satisfactory quality with an audio stream of around
80-90mb.

Cheers!
