Movie Info

In this independently produced drama, a timbermill owner is having great difficulty sustaining a livelihood due to overcutting and peculiarities of the international trade situation. Despite the damaging effect his mill has on the local environment, he appears to be someone who really enjoys the unspoiled wilderness, because he goes fly-fishing whenever he can. His troubled life edges veers into deeper waters when his daughter sends him a letter in which she accuses him of incest. Whether her story proves to be true or not, it is certain that his life is now ruined forever, as are the lives of those around him. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Bed You Sleep In


One of the most beautifully made films I have ever seen. Scene in the restaurant with the phone ringing is one of the most interesting, profound shots I have ever seen. Bothered by the lack of redemption (darkness) and the character who shows up and knows Ray's name, subsequently cursing him. Did we really need that? No. Film also has collection of the longest, slowest pans I have ever seen. They always seem to work amazingly. Something meaningful always shows up. Thy flesh out the movie, developing atmosphere and a sense of the real. :up: :up: :up:
