Storyline

Widowed father Jim and his twenty-seven-year-old son Caleb run a custom furniture business in the Slocan Valley area of British Columbia. Jim is the craftsman who will do whatever is necessary to produce a quality piece, regardless of cost to the company or customer wants. Caleb is the business person who tries to reign Jim in, realizing that if he cannot do so the business will fail. Into their lives returns Matthew, an old friend of Caleb's parents from back in the days when they were hippies during the Vietnam War era. Jim was an American draft dodger and Matthew was an American army deserter. While Jim has stuck to his idealistic hippie roots, Matthew is now a wealthy developer who is building a lodge in the area. In discussions solely with Caleb, Matthew commissions chairs to be made for the lodge. Seeing this contract as a way for the business to flourish, Caleb agrees but asks Matthew not to divulge to Jim that the chairs they will be making are for him, as he knows Jim will ...

Nicely done
28 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Comparable to John Sayles' Sunshine State in its overarching theme: that the dreams of one generation, however noble, may not be the dreams of their children. Can you achieve your own identity without rebelling against your parents? The movie suggests you can't -- a conclusion expressed in more colourful terms by Matt Craven's character Matthew.

It's not a fast-moving movie, but I was pulled in, thanks to the performances of Lemche, Craven and Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan. Looking forward to director Aubrey Nealon's next project, though one suspects bits of autobiography were all over the feature film debut of this New Denver, B.C. product.
