Trivia

The climactic finale set in the mountains near a gigantic cascading waterfall was filmed in Provo Canyon, Utah. The breathtaking, massive monument, called Bridal Veil Falls, featured an aerial tramway which tourists could ride to the top of the falls and visit a restaurant and gift shop built high above. In early 1996, an avalanche destroyed the tramway's building housing, the tramway machinery, the restaurant, and the gift shop. They were never rebuilt because winters are so harsh and unpredictable in Utah. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridal_Veil_Falls_(Utah) See more »

Superb!!
7 February 2003 | by (London,UK) – See all my reviews

I watched this little gem of a film on UK television last night and enjoyed it immensely.I can only agree with what everyone else said and thoroughly recommend seeing this if You get a chance,I know I'll have to buy the DVD or Video of this film if I can find it. What a tragedy that the girl who played Savannah died at such a young age.
