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

beautifully shot
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently rented this on DVD and was really enjoyed by this film - well cast, beautifully shot, and a truly compelling story. Out of the Black is one of the very few films that doesn't have a single flaw. Seeing Out of the Black for the first time was the most amazing movie experiences of my life. There's scenes that stay with you when the movies over, and you don't forget them. The dialogue is just unbelievable. I've seen the movie at least 30, 40 times, and I'm still amazed at how perfect it is. The music, the acting, everything. Its my opinion that this is the greatest movie ever made, and I doubt that anyone can watch this movie, and think I'm crazy.
