When Ulee is being knifed the perpetrator uses an underarm swing, which would place the wound in his lower back. The view changes to inside the truck and the perpetrator's arm is shown as over handed which would cause a wound near the shoulder where it is shown to be. See more »
Although many people say this film is slow and has no action, that is not true in many areas. It IS mostly a drama on the life of a middle-aged beekeeper and his family's problems. But there are also many scary situations, and although there are no actual fights, the scenes between Ulee and his son's cohorts are realistically tense. Peter Fonda is a brilliant actor and Patricia Richardson shows us her talents as well.
