The bad guys want to build a dam, the lead won't move. It's a dull plot, set in a time and place that fails to catch the imagination.
But where the film really fails is in how dark and bleak it feels. There is no humour at all and little to connect with. The audience is forced to watch a gruelling, grotty struggle with no reward.
It feels like being dunked in the freezing, churning, never ceasing river for a hundred minutes.
In addition to being beautifully photographed and establishing a strong sense of "place", Craven's film is thoughtful, well-paced, and never manipulative. The latter is critical, because it keeps certain scenes from descending into unintended and unnecessary melodrama.
A MUST SEE...independent film that won the "Spirit Award"
Boring, but interesting. Michael J Fox is the antagonist- the only example Ive found so far.
This movie is awesome. It is a tearjerker in some areas though.
