Kris Lemenche is too weak an actor to hang a movie off of. Matt Craven is good, but his role (and the associated conflict) is poorly-defined. Michael Hogan (the whole reason I even bothered with this movie) was suitable as Jim, but its as though he was never really allowed to sink his teeth into the part, so he doesn't seem very engaged throughout much of the movie.
I expected more on the woodworking angle to make me fall in love with the craftsmanship of these men, but that only came in a couple of brief, insufficient vignettes and almost nothing was done to convince me that Caleb was anything more than a helper, despite claims he's almost as skilled as his father.
The scenery is nice, but the story has no arc and the ending was dull & pointless. The script is broody & conflicted without really, fully explaining why. People keep advising Caleb to tell his dad off-what do they know that we viewers do not? Sure, Jim makes choices based on his heart, not his head, which makes it hard to keep the business afloat, but you never really get the sense that Caleb wants to strike out on his own.
