I've Heard the Mermaids Singing
Absent-minded photographer Polly (Sheila McCarthy) lands a job at an art gallery in Toronto operated by a woman named Gabrielle (Paule Baillargeon). Gabrielle tells Polly she regrets she never became a great painter. Polly is impressed with Gabrielle's paintings, however, and after she smuggles one into a gallery show, a critic praises it as a masterpiece. But when it turns out to be the work of Gabrielle's lover (Ann-Marie MacDonald), Polly begins to understand how the art world works.
