Movie Info

A walk by the seashore takes a girl on the first step of an amazing journey in this family-friendly drama. When her father loses his job and money gets tight, 14-year-old Julie Kimbell (Suzanne Marie Doyon) leaves her California home and moves with her family to Manzanita, a small town on the coast of Oregon. Julie, her parents, Robert (Brian McNamara) and Kathryn (Julia Campbell), and her bother, Jimmy (Brian Thompson), settle in with her grandpa Kimbell (Max Gail), who knows more than a little about local legends and history. When Julie has an unexpected encounter with an elk while taking a walk on the beach, she discovers an ancient gold coin. After telling her grandpa and his friend Standing Elk (Floyd Red Crow Westerman) about her experience, they tell Julie about the fabled Tillamook Treasure, a fortune in gold supposedly hidden in Manzanita in the 16th century by Spanish sailors who used nefarious means to protect their treasure from the natives. As Julie learns more of the lore of Manzanita's Native American tribes, she begins experiencing some of the magic of their people, and sees the friendly elk as a spirit link to the fabled events of four centuries before. The Tillamook Treasure took the prize as the Best Family Feature at the 2006 Newport Beach Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Tillamook's Gold

The acting in this movie is horrible. If you're looking for a way to waste over an hour of your life, here is a simple solution for your problem. The plot (1/5 stars), the cast (1/5 stars), the acting (.5/5 stars (do I have to give a .5 even? I'm not sure about the rules on that one). There's no way anyone saw this and thought it was a good movie, the family cast is possibly responsible for artificial review inflation. Actually, richard813 is a cast member who used the same head shot from the website as he did for his user photo (not the sharpest rabbit in the forest).

A family-friendly film that begins benignly and slowly crumbles and corrodes beneath its own weight -- ending with resounding cinematic thud.
