Storyline

Welcome to Lytton - Population 350. Home of the World Famous Gold Rush Days... and not much else. Cole Chambers is a young man who has spent his entire life picking up the pieces of his shattered family. He protects his older sister's 6 year-old son from his abusive step father. He manages the family gas station and cares for his brain-damaged mother, whose condition he feels utterly responsible for. Frustrated and trapped, Cole carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He dreams for something, anything beyond his monotonous life. When Cole gets the opportunity to take a creative writing class at a University in the city, he sees his potential for the first time - that he can get out of small town Lytton and actually make something out of his life... but at what cost? Cole spends increasing amounts of time away from home, falling in love with Serafina, a rich girl from his writing class. Family and friends in Lytton fall apart without Cole's careful guidance. Unable to escape ... Written by Anonymous

Good small town drama
24 November 2013 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Cole is the story of young man looking to break out of a small town and make a better life for himself. It's a familiar story that has been done many times before however it is well filmed and manages to hold your interest throughout. This is in no small way down to a strong performance from the likable Richard De Klerk who carries the film.

It's a clash of cultures as the poor boy and the rich girl overcome the inevitable problems a difference in social status brings. It is fairly predictable in that the usual clichés are here drunken rednecks, over protective parents etc but the acting performances are strong enough to get over this issue.

Although it plays as a long episode of a soap, Cole has enough drama to make it a really enjoyable film. Well worth a watch.
