Goofs

There are four goofs when the Hillermans have dinner with Andy. With the line, "Eugene would be sitting here," position of Andy's right hand changes, plus he gains a fork. When Andy says, "if the rabbit hadn't stopped," the fork jumps from Andy's right to left hand. At the line, "maybe he's just like a woman," Andy's hand shifts from motioning with the fork to an eating position. And when arguing about leaving the house, Andy's hands change positions.

Quotes

George Jansen: I think what yer askin' is will I give you a shotgun.
Arnold Hillerman: You got a few.
George Jansen: Yeah. But I've had them guns a long time. And if I give one away I wouldn't see it no more. And I wouldn't see the fellow I give it to, either. Now it might be I can get along without one of my shotguns, but I don't want to loose a grandson. I wouldn't have none left... Say, you ever thought about being a millionaire.
Arnold Hillerman: No.
George Jansen: You might give that some thought.

Very interesting (but slow moving).
18 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

12 year old Arnald Hillerman accidentally kills his older brother Eugene. His feelings are arrested by the fact that his family can not interact with him (or feel it is not the right thing to do). His ONLY refuge is his grandfather, who is the ONLY one who seems to have compassion on him. The Realism will captivate "true-2-life" movie lovers, but will not satisfy those that desire action & thrills.
