Storyline

Set amongst the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania's once prosperous coal country, Out of the Black is a suspensful, compelling tale of two brothers, Cole and Patrick Malby, and their quest to unravel the mysteries surrounding their father's death. Based around the true story of one of the countries worst mining accidents on record, this heartfelt drama follows the plight of two brothers' quest for the truth. Hiding from their past and keeping to themselves, the two young men afford a meager, day by day existence, working their small, dilapidated farm. But all that is about to change, when a strange woman, Cait MacLochlainn, arrives in town to find her long lost father, a man she's never met. Through a series of events, Cole reluctantly resolves to help Cait locate her father. The result proves to be a profound journey of personal truths, freedom and, finally...love. Written by Anonymous

Interesting, suspenseful
9 November 2002 | by (Southern CA) – See all my reviews

I found the blend of known, and unknown (to Me) actors more interesting. I felt as if I were watching the characters come to life on the screen, rather than seeing actors portraying the same types that they always play in every movie that they do. I hate movies that I can predict the ending to, less than half way into.

This film kept me guessing to the very end. I found it compelling.
