This comedy-drama skewers the film world when a veteran playwright must decide between accepting government funds to turn his new play into a Canadian-made feature film with a multi-million dollar contract. Or accept an American producer’s offer of total artistic control but far less money. Will Moretti stand firm in his artistic and personal integrity? Or take the cash?

"Hard-hitting on the one hand, sweet as sugar on the other, The Envelope left the impression of a well-baked, enjoyable piece of Italian pastry."  – Montreal Gazette
