Sentimental, stunning scenery, the tragedy of divorce.
23 September 2004 | by (near Maldon, Essex, England) – See all my reviews

Man rediscovers his yearning to be a backwoodsman when his wife decides that life with him and his two kids is not enough for her, despite their apparent material comfort.

I am not sure how realistic this is but I am sure it shows how that, divorce is ALWAYS painful for children and that we should be very sure before we begat them that our partner is the person we will want to be with for ever even, when we and they get older, more distant and crotchety.

It is perhaps a film for a couple to watch if they are thinking of conception, especially if the conception is aimed to bring them together.

It could be quite a good film for kids to see whose parents have divorced, although I guess that comparatively few children live in such comfort and have a Dad who will devote several, (we were not told how long but I estimate 3 or 4) weeks on a trip with one child.

As well as all this stuff about the implications of divorce, we were introduced to the death of a parent and grandparent, learning about the lives of our ancestors, in this case native Americans, Lesbian marriage, making friends with those who have different life styles to us.

This is distorted, I enjoyed it and was moved by the acting skills of the young woman who was about 14 but playing a very believable 10 year old.

A film for a quiet afternoon and about half a box of tissues, I was sufficiently gripped not to answer my phone because I did not want to miss it!
