An awful, amateurish attempt at film making
1 June 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Falling Sky" is a shabby attempt at making a serious drama of the same ilk as "Anywhere But Here" and "Tumbleweeds"; mom/daughter stories where the daughter is the more mature of the two. Fraught with ineptitude in just about every aspect, the tragedy of this film isn't in the story. It's the blotch on the resumes of the cast it creates. Pass on this loser.
