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

family adventure
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the great pleasure of watching the adventure film, The Tillamock Treasure, with my 12 year old daughter. I didn't cringe at the dialog or worry that the behavior was far advanced of a young teenage girl. We both thoroughly enjoyed the story. The lead character, Julie, is refreshing and talented in her portrayal of a young girl who comes of age in the small Oregan coastal town that she moves to with her fractured family. Her natural beauty and the beautiful scenery is true eye candy. This film's action kept both of us on the edge of our seat. How exciting to sit and watch a performance where the dialog was engaging and the behavior appropriate. I don't think I could sit and watch another Hillary Duff or Brittany Spears wannabe on the screen. And I know my daughter loved the film. She still talks about some of the very funny scenes.
