My thoughts on "Medicine River"
23 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on TV about 6 times and really enjoyed it.Gave my copy of it to someone hoping to re-record it - usual thing happened - they didn't repeat so had to get a copy of it from the US.Have also got the book which is slightly different. Still a very good "feel good" film. I never tire of watching it!! All the characters are believable and especially like Harlen. I think it portrays a small town environment down to a tee, with everyone seeming to know everyone! It was filmed in the towns of High River and Okotoks (hence me email address) which I have always wanted to visit. This is probably one of my "fav" films of all time and know a few people that really like it.
