Great story and shooting
25 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great family-friendly movie for people who aren't generally drawn to family-friendly movies. Movie follows the developing relationship between a modern rancher and his granddaughter who comes to live with him. Initially gruff and grouchy grandfather tries to make up for the mistakes he made in not being involved in his daughter's early years. Shows the plight of the modern rancher through low cattle prices and high feed costs. Great acting by Buck Taylor as Harry Dobbs, the grandfather. Great supporting cast even in minor parts. Outstanding scenery and music. Obviously was a labor of love for Taylor and director Matthew Marconi.
