The movie takes a coming of age story and makes it relevant for everyone. The shots and scenery of the mountains are breathtaking.
There are some very funny, sly moments in it -- the counterpoint between draft-dodger/back to the land parents and 20-something children trying to make sense of it for themselves is very poignant. Great script. You really get a sense of why some people have chosen to spend their lives in this valley - and how the choice sometimes is overlooked when you grew up there.
Definitely a must see -- not just for the great scenery and beautiful shots, but for a story that resonates.
