Bob Swerer Jr.,
The story is simple, eloquent, and heartfelt. The subtle strength of the acting adds a truthful reality that is rarely found in films these days. There are no answers, no huge plot twists, no Hollywood hoopla ... it is simply a taste of three people's journey of self discovery ... and, the Appalachian Trail provides the perfect backdrop. This film captured it's mysterious allure, the painful determination, the thrown-together friendships, and the lonely hike. There's some romance (REAL life romance between Olivia and Rollin -- the kind that's messy, tentative, and confusing), some humor (provided quite wonderfully by the character of Slackpack), breathtaking scenery, and a "feel good" uplifting nature by the end. And the score rocks!!! Bravo!! I want more films like this!
