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.

It was really good!
12 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I rented this from my local video store, not expecting much, but I was really surprised. This movie was thoughtful, smart, had great acting and had a genuine emotional depth I hardly ever see in these kinds of films. It also seemed very well directed. Although I'm no expert, I thought it looked a whole lot better than most movies I see in the theaters. It made me think of Stand By Me, as if these were the same characters a little older and in a different time. I liked how the writer tried to make a point about how small miscommunications can grow into disasters. Watching the movie, you can pick out lots of places where a bit of honesty between the characters would have averted the bigger troubles to come. Overall, it seemed pretty ambitious for a independent movie.
