Storyline

With his alcoholic former wife, Cindy, always absent, the young single father, Ethan, is trying his best to bring up his three-year-old son, Nate, all by himself. However, as the father and son embark on a bonding trip in the snow-covered wilderness of the Rocky Mountains, one wrong decision and a momentary lapse of judgment seal Nate's fate, resulting in his disappearance. Now, tragedy and profound guilt divide the close-knit, working-class community of Angels Crest, as the fading boundaries between right and wrong throw the town into confusion. Can the truth set one free? Can there be forgiveness for the terrible mistakes of the past? Written by Nick Riganas

Pointless and predictable
28 December 2011 | by RocknRollPt2See all my reviews

All the great vistas and quality cinematography, can't make up for the lackluster production and direction of this film. Thomas Dekker looks more like he should be playing Gerard Way in the "My Chemical Romance" story, than a grease monkey in a hillbilly town.

Then you have the textbook lesbian couple seen in almost all movies made in the past 10 years. Juxtaposed with the overtly religious mother with the alcoholic daughter, this story seems more like it's trying to please a film school students liberal teacher.

No heroes, no anti-heroes. No moral, no point.

Everyone seems to be in a rut here. No rhyme or reason.

A better name for this would be "Shit Happens".

Nice to see Mira Sorvino. I can't understand why she did this though. No opportunities for her to shine in this, but she plays her role well.

Same goes for Jeremy Piven, though in his case he should fire his agent. He's a great actor, and plays his part well, but seems constrained by the script and/or director.

Not bad, but not good either.
