Storyline

The day he receives his driver's license back following a six month suspension for reckless driving, nineteen year old Joe Spring, with his parents' reluctant blessing, leaves their Aldergrove, British Columbia home on Friday night following work for the several hours drive to Quesnel, British Columbia for a party, he stating that he will be home on Monday. He promises to telephone his mother, Teresa Spring, once he arrives in Quesnel the following morning. But she never receives the telephone call, he doesn't answer her repeated calls, and subsequently she receives a call from Joe's stoned friend Eric in Quesnel stating that Joe never made it to the party. Teresa feels the need to do something to locate Joe, which is made all the more difficult because of husband Tim Spring's more relaxed attitude thus far about Joe's whereabouts. Tim, who has been out of work now for several years, has basically shut down in life, which has affected his relationship with his entire family. The ... Written by Huggo

Fine acting film
11 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film very absorbing in its motive and writing. Whether based on facts or not, it was well done. Directed well by Norma Bailey whom I trust had a lot to do with the fine casting. Paced very well by writers, David Fraser, Peter Smith and Greg Spottiswood. Acting was exceptional with Kelly Rowan and Shawn Doyle as the parents of the boy who became missing. Doyle underplayed beautifully in support of Kelly Rowan who played the lead. I loved her acting but hated her hair. What woman on a rescue mission would travel with her too long hair covering her face. Realistically there is much underbrush, bad weather and such in the way and she's running around with these too long tresses for a woman of her age blowing in the wind. Annoyed me very much and took away from watching her. Even the daughter played by Tegan Moss, had the sense to have her hair pulled back out of her face. Both she and Ryan McDonell played the siblings of our young man, Dustin Milligan. They were excellent in the roles, well cast. Katherine Isabelle plays the floozy who misleads our hero. Not a very interesting role and not the greatest acting was needed. Just to look bored through it all, no heart, and she did that. Michael Eklund was her cohort in evil and overplayed a bit. But then, there are really people like that out there. My favorite in this, although they all were good, was Gwynyth Walsh as the helicopter pilot who broke the rules to help find the boy. I had seen her earlier in Her Only Child where she played an overbearing mother possessive of her only daughter. She played such a different role in that which definitely shows this actress's versatility. She was wonderful in a small role in this.
