Given the inherent limitations of the material, all of the actors work diligently and quite effectively.

Erich Roland's HD cinematography is the only element of the film one can honestly enjoy.

Too bad the offscreen intrigue doesn't make up for what flags in Flagg.

Dana is really the heart of the movie, giving a subtle, low-key performance.

Los Angeles CityBeat

Miller's affection for the Purdys... and their rustic way of life can't compensate for the script's clunky pacing and occasional moralizing.

October 5, 2007
Salt Lake Tribune

Crusty characters, a bluegrass soundtrack and a dysfunctional family that could exist only in the minds of Hollywood screenwriters make this film more precious than real -- or funny.
