The Piano Man's Daughter is a television movie, adapted in 2003 by Sullivan Entertainment from the 1995 novel by Timothy Findley.

Rights to the novel's film adaptation were originally purchased by Whoopi Goldberg. Goldberg acquired the film rights after reading the novel while in Toronto starring in Norman Jewison’s film “Bogus”. Deciding that as a Canadian novel it would be most appropriate to work with a Canadian film studio, Goldberg produced the film in collaboration with Kevin Sullivan.

Synopsis

A young man must deal with several generations of madness and familial intrigue in this screen adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Timothy Findley. Charlie Kilworth (Christian Campbell) is a young man whose mother, Lily (Stockard Channing), is the daughter of Frederick Wyatt (R.H. Thomson), the owner of a well-known piano manufacturing company. Lily is also a free-spirited and unstable woman, who bore Charlie out of wedlock, has had a number of lovers over the years, and has an unsettling fascination with fire. Lily's mother Ede (Wendy Crewson) has put her daughter in a mental hospital on several occasions, and is considering having Lily lobotomized. Charlie, meanwhile, has had affairs with a number of women but has never settled down with anyone; working as an events coordinator at a resort hotel, Charlie becomes infatuated with Alex Lamont (Sarah Strange), the singer in a dance band Charlie has booked into the ballroom. Lily urges her son to get married and raise a family, but Charlie isn't so sure he's ready for a lifetime commitment, and Alex becomes frustrated by Charlie's inability to take their relationship seriously. Meanwhile, Ede and Frederick have decided that Lily needs to be permanently committed to an institution; Charlie insists that they send her to a comfortable private facility, but then discovers that a mysterious benefactor has been supporting Lily for years, and Ede and Frederick have decided if Lily is to be in a private institution, then the generous stranger must be the one who pays for it. Surprisingly, The Piano Man's Daughter was co-produced by noted comic actress Whoopi Goldberg.

Set in the summer of 1935, 16-year-old Ryan Delaney (Greg Spottiswood) wants to go to university on a scholarship, but his struggling mother (Patricia Phillips) wants him to stay home, find work, and take care of his 10-year-old brother Sullivan (Zachary Bennett). Due to circumstances relating to the Depression, the brothers were separated and have recently reunited. Ryan is easily annoyed by his little brother. Desperate to find a job, Ryan manages to gain a position as a counselor at Camp Hochelaga despite the fact that he is not qualified; he is too young, has never been to camp, and cannot swim, none of which he reveals during his interview with the camp director, Chief Berman (Joe Flaherty). The ruse is so effective that Ryan is offered the lead counselor position for the group of age 10 boys. After his mother tells him that he cannot go to camp without Sullivan, Ryan convinces Chief Berman to allow the young boy to attend. Being age 10, Sullivan is assigned to Ryan's group.

Nous sommes en octobre 1998, dans l'état du Wyoming. Matthew Shepard, 21 ans, passe confortablement la soirée en compagnie d'amis gays dans un pub. Peu après leur départ, alors qu'il reste seul à finir sa soirée, deux inconnus l'abordent et lui demandent s'il est homosexuel. Après avoir répondu par l'affirmative, les deux hommes se mettent à draguer l'étudiant, lequel accepte de les suivre dans leur voiture. Mais ce jeu de séduction s'avère être en réalité un piège machiavélique. En effet, les deux compères kidnappent leur proie et l'entraînent dans un sous-bois. Ils l'attachent ensuite à une barrière, le passent à tabac, lui fracassent le crâne et s'enfuient, le laissant pour mort. L'étudiant sera retrouvé par le plus grand des hasards par un jogger, après 18 heures d'abandon dans le froid. Transporté d'urgence à l'hôpital, il restera cinq jours dans le coma avant de succomber à ses blessures.
