Storyline

How far would you go to keep your job? That's the question the ad for this movies states. Based on a true story, Dan Cutler is the head of a New York advertising agency. In a move to build character, he books a trip for a whitewater rafting trip on Canada's White Mile. After the raft turns over, all of the men scatter all over the rapids. Some of them are found dead, which leads to a lawsuit by one of the wives of the deceased. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Quotes

Jack Robbins: Is your knee hurting, Dan?
Dan Cutler: No, it's fine. How are you? You ought to ask them to give you a pill.
Jack Robbins: Do you want me to make the calls to the families?
Dan Cutler: No, I'll call them. You go back home, and make sure people don't fall apart. You know, there's a lesson here. I didn't motivate them enough. If I'd just built a fire under them, we wouldn't be here now. I let myself down, you know? You were great out there, Jack; you ought to be proud of yourself.

I like my water blue.
28 November 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"White Mile" tells the true story of a driven, success-at-all-cost ad agency executive who puts together a fishing and white water rafting trip for a group of agency and client people so they can bond and make a tenuous business relationship more secure. The trip goes bad when a raft overturns resulting in death and a difficult search through gray areas for a black and white sense of culpability. The film is a solid product given its docudramatic limitations and refuses to be dumbed down and cheapened up for the sake of entertainment. A smart flick with some good messages about the absolute nature of truth, matters of conscience, and just saying "no". (B)
