Sensational performances. A Romantic, somewhat humourous tale.

Audience Reviews for Reach the Rock


I really liked this film, it's well written, very amusing as well as touching. It has a good feel for small town life, the characters are quite well developed and Alessandro Nivola is excellent in the lead role. Great story, thoroughly enjoyable.

Reach the Rock Quotes

Robin: Wow! Shermer is West Chicago, Illinois. The jail is from the old police station on Mc Connel street.
