Beautiful film
10 July 2003 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I completely agree with the positive reviews. A lovely, subtle film, and I can attest to its verisimilitude. I was a reporter in West Palm Beach, Fla. for 1 1/2 years from 1981 to 1983 and this story hits the nail right on the head -- development issues, land use issues, environmental issues and journalism/ethics issues. It's fictional, but it's also completely real.
