Goofs

A character mentions the old prison that was torn down was in Rockland. The Maine State prison was located in Thomaston before being torn down and relocated to Warren. A Maine resident (especially one living that close to Rockland) would not have made that mistake. See more »

Maine, the way it could be.
24 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good movie. Low budget. Very realistic character development. Maine is depicted the way it is in many fishing communities. Good camera work, lots of non actors in the film. I especially enjoyed the take of the couple in the kitchen and their daughter sleeping on the couch. Wonderful light and mood setting in that clip. On the other side, I think that the cameraman could have been more patient with filming and wait for some morning fog rolling over the boat. It would depict Maine atmosphere better. The sound work in the movie could probably use a little improvement but none of these complains detract from the movie. I would recommend you seeing it if you are looking for non-Hollywood movie without any fluff.

I enjoyed it very much.
