Storyline

Will (Josh Hopkins), a charming 35-year-old Philadelphia ad man, heads to Lebanon, Pa. to bury his recently deceased father. He forms an unexpected friendship with CJ (Rachel Kitson), his bright, newly pregnant 17-year-old cousin. As Will becomes interested in CJ's married teacher (Samantha Mathis) and CJ confronts her conflicted father, both struggle with formidable decisions about the path their lives will take. Can we vault our differences and meet in the middle? This bittersweet comic drama tenderly explores the cultural divide in America through the lives of one extended family.

Too Preachy
9 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are MANY controversial issues in this film : abortion, adoption, conservative, liberal, religion, infidelity, teen sex....jeez! Too much for one movie. I thought is was going to be about urban living vs. small town. This was not even a discussion, but rather the writer predictably stereotyped each kind of living. This was very uninteresting in light of the local food movement and current trend to blend both worlds. There was no new thought in this film, but rather an attempt at almost every moment to remain "neutral" on the many controversies. Unfortunately, it ended up being one big preach. There were only a few moments when I felt like the dialog and acting were convincing. Otherwise, it either dragged or the actors were "educating" me on these issues. Poorly written, nothing special about the production value, and aside from waiting to hear what the stance is....it's pretty boring. Don't recommend it.
