A Real Treasure
25 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of film they just don't produce anymore. A sweet, gentle family movie with a moral. John Slater stars as a Bill Buckle, a simple dreamer without any material wealth. His family owned a fishing ship, The Cascade, but when his father died many years ago, they had to sell the boat to pay for the funeral. Bill's dream is to one day buy back The Cascade and fish the seas again.

Presently, The Cascade, is owned by a trio of fisherman. They don't value the ship as Bill does. They consider the boat out of date and ineffective. They plot to wreck the ship so they can claim the insurance money. Fate enters when the Cascade is short crew and Bill is asked to work as a deck hand. Adding to the drama is the appearance of a young lad from a nearby orphanage who has stowed away on the Cascade. This all leads to the final conflict at sea, where Bill will certainly try to save the ship from her demise.

This is an extremely well done, low budget British movie. It runs less than an hour but no time is wasted. The film conveys a beautiful message and the actors performances are fine performances all round. The film even has a catchy song that is played throughout the feature.
