Did You Know?


When Dennis walks into the police station about 30 minutes into the movie, the officer and clerk are at a computer terminal talking about his mother having Alzheimer's and his wife passing away when the son was 3. When Dennis asks where they are getting this information, the officer says law enforcement - NCIC and FBI. The NCIC is the National Crime Information Computer, and all it contains is criminal arrest or missing/wanted person data, such as name, date of birth, addresses, and offenses by charge and location (arresting agency). No personal family history is stored there. Ditto the FBI. An FBI number only means someone has been arrested for certain offenses or in multiple states. See more »

Pleasant Made For TV Movie
23 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While driving on vacation with his son Nick Conway (Joseph Cross) in a lonely road, the widow writer Dennis Conway (Kyle MacLachlan) helps a young couple that crashed their classic car out of the road. Dennis uses his van to tow the car back to the road and later Nick finds a duffel bag with an address forgotten by the couple on the ditch. They drive to Springsville to return the bag and after locating the house, they spend the night in town. On the next morning, while waiting for the breakfast, Nick has an accident with a logging truck in the gas station and breaks his leg. They are forced to stay and Nick has a crush on Dr. Sophie Weston (Alison Eastwood) that is treating his son. When Dennis discovers that the dwellers do not get old or sick due to the water of the local spring, Dennis asks Sophie to convince the council of the town to stay in Springsville. However, when he discovers the dark secret of the one hundredth birthday party of the locals, he evaluates his decision.

"The Spring" is a pleasant made for TV movie about a place like a contemporary Shangri-La. The story has flaws, like for example would the children keep their age forever?; but anyway it is an enjoyable family entertainment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Mistério da Fonte" ("The Mystery of the Fountain")
