Simple storytelling at its finest
24 June 2002 | by (Pine County, MN) – See all my reviews

If you want car chases, gunfights and explosions, this isn't the movie for you. If you enjoy the craft of simple storytelling, small town life and the picturesque nature of Sandstone Minnesota, well, then I think you should buy this movie.
