Summer vacation in Mountain's Edge, a sprawling two-square-mile subdivision of three-story half-million-dollar catalogue homes in suburban Denver. At the heart of the subdivision, its own fleet of soccer fields, manicured and gleaming - a game in play, a swarm of 12-year-olds running from end to end, moms and dads in that "off-duty Hollywood" look. At the foot of the subdivision: The desert to one side, long and dry, and endless-looking. To the other side, a span of high-desert foothills, rolling upward into the greener, higher mountains. It is here that two sets of kids - neighbors in both landscape and loss - will wake one morning to find that their paths begin to resemble that of a character in their favorite mythological book series. What they don't yet know is that an invisible darkness following them is what they make it out to be - themselves, their fears about their parents, the frequency of change in their lives, and the instability of a world lived on the mountain's edge. Written by J. Reuben Appelman

Covers serious issues that may or not be understood by Children
29 October 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Saw this the other day expecting a childish fantasy adventure family film but instead what i saw was a movie that deals with divorce and death. the story revolves around 2 families who haven't moved on with a loss of a family member and as a result they get transported to another realm of reality. now don't get too excited highlights of the film come in verbal scenes rather than in visual action scenes. The movies special effects are nowhere to been seen and it's all filmed in one small area. Villains are also visually non existent and are more in the form of wind/fire.

The dialogue of the film while being good stuff in a lot of the scenes i found it too complicated/mature for the characters in this film. Which also makes me wonder whether kids watching this film would actually understand it. overall i enjoyed the message of the film but at the same time i feel the deliverance wouldn't capture the attention of kids in 2010.
