Storyline

Julie, a lonely fourteen year old girl, moves to Manzanita, an Oregon seaside town, from Los Angeles after her writer father, Robert, loses his job. Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-to-bright local logger. The story opens with a 16th century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away. Back in present day, Julie has a dramatic encounter with a large Roosevelt Elk on the beach. Its hooves uncover an old Spanish gold coin in the sand. The Elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and ... Written by Richard Doyon

Trivia

The story begins with a mystical elk on the beach running at Julie and jumping over her. The scene's genesis was in a real event. One summer, when Suzanne Marie and Janine Doyon were just toddlers, they were on the Manzanita beach with their mother, director Jane Beaumont Hall. The children were a hundred feet away playing in the sand. Suddenly, from out of nowhere a huge Roosevelt Elk came running down the beach straight for the girls. "There was nothing I could do," says Hall. "Time stood still as I saw the Elk run towards the girls and then suddenly swerve around them. The elk ran into the ocean and swam out past the breakers. It was an amazing experience. I don't think I had time to be scared for the girls and the elk was such a magnificent creature." Hall remembered that scene when she and Richard Doyon wrote the screenplay. Both the elk on the beach and the elk swimming in the ocean were written into the script. See more »

Lovely film, lovely message
12 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a treat to go to a movie and enjoy every minute of it. The girl who plays Julie, the lead character, Suzanne Marie Doyon, was charming and such a wonderful actor. I am looking forward to more from this young lady. There is a scene with her older sister (Janine Doyon -- they must be sisters in real life as well as the movie - very cool) where they were sitting on the beach talking about the family's problems, was beautiful in all ways, very touching. It was among my favorites in the movie.

I like it that the movie shows a girl growing up and maturing without having to resort to the old story line of sex and drugs. Growing up certainly involves those things for many but this film touches on what is really important -- learning who you are in the world and discovering that you have the power to do important things. This is a real good moral for young girls everywhere.

I also loved the old Indian man, Standing Elk. He was so wonderful, funny and so respectful of Julie that he teaches her things by guiding her to the answers instead of preaching at her. He is so cute, too.

I would have voted 10 but I never have seem the perfect movie.
