Trivia

The train trestle used in the film is part of the Vernonia-Banks Linear Park Trail. The trestle was burnt down in the 1980s. It was a major trestle used for the railroad to Vernonia's once-running saw mill that was well known as the world's largest at one time. The place that the group is seen meeting a couple times throughout the movie with graffiti on the walls is the site where the saw mill was, which is now known as the "Mill Pond" in Vernonia, Oregon.

Nice story, nice scenery, nice acting, version 2.00
16 April 2007 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This is a complete rewrite of my earlier review.

I purchased this disk, and Air Force One, as a follow up to A Little Princess (1995), which I find to be a remarkable story, if with a few massive flaws. That has one of the finest soundtrack scores by Patrick Doyle and fascinating acting by such as Liesel Matthews. My first comment was totally carried away by that.

I find the story evocative of Buffy series, the earlier episodes. The feel of the romance angles. The movement of the plot. Just it takes that in a very different direction. If Buffy can be considered as escapist fantasy, then this is more real world fantasy. On that level I prefer this to Air Force One, which is a polished and fun and big budget type action story linked to a rather right wing plot.

My first DVD was 2.35 original trimmed down to 1.33 old television size, 29.970fps region 1. I now have the same thing in region 2, 25fps, hence a slightly better image definition. I assume that there is zero chance of this ever becoming available as full 2.35.

The filming is likely done in Oregon. IMDb trivia mentions the rail track as being in the Nehalem valley at Vernonia. More rugged than Twilight type country, and maybe less rain.
