A wonderful ensemble movie led by John Mahoney.
27 July 2002 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

I recently viewed this movie at the Long Island Film Festival and was delighted by its originality and fine performances. It's visually very intriguing as it's set in a very remote area in California. The characters were all somewhat quirky but lovable. See this movie if you want some enjoyable and satisfying time spent with some interesting people.
