In Jean-François Pouliot’s internationally charming, award-laden comedy Seducing Doctor Lewis, a guppy-size French Canadian fishing village in need of a resident doctor welcomes a smooth Montreal plastic surgeon offering a month’s medical services to expunge a minor drug charge – very ”Northern Exposure.” But while Dr. Christopher Lewis (David Boutin) plans a short stay, the citizenry, led by the town’s wily mayor (Raymond Bouchard), scheme to ensure longer-term commitment: They reinvent themselves as an irresistible, quaintly authentic Eden built on lies – very ”Waking Ned Devine.” There’s shrewd wit to Pouliot’s gentle, no-bull farce.
