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>

Riveting
23 August 2001 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Combining the best elements of adventure, suspense, character study AND courtroom drama, "White Mile" is a smart and engrossing film, made all the more fascinating due to the fact that it's (at least partially) based on true events. Alan Alda gives an astonishing performance as Dan Cutler, a hard-assed, unsympathetic ad executive who, convinced that his underlings have lost their competitive edge in the business, bullies them (along with a couple of their clients) into going on a whitewater rafting trip. Tragedy strikes the group on their outing, and when the details of the accident look like they may be swept under the rug and dismissed, one of the men who survived (Peter Gallagher, also very fine)decides to come forth and tell the truth when Cutler and the company are sued by the wife of one of the deceased.

If you only know Alda from his days as the nice-guy Hawkeye on "M*A*S*H," he's sure to surprise you here with his intense, tightly-wound portrayal. Expertly filmed by veteran director Robert Butler, "White Mile" is riveting all the way. Excellent, atmospheric score by Pray For Rain. Not to be missed! ****stars
