"Seven Days in Utopia" is the third film credit which Robert Duvall and Lucas Black share. In addition to the 1996 film "Sling Blade" in which they shared no screen time, they appeared in the 2009 film "Get Low" which also starred Bill Murray and Sissy Spacek. See more »
The morning after a torrential rain near the end of the film, Luke is instructed to bury a box in a small hole dug into the earth. The dirt - whether recently dug or not - would have shown some moisture retained from the storm and would not have been the fine dusty powdered dirt in this scene following that size of a thunderstorm. The hole, too, would have shown some moisture absorbed into the earth. See more »

If I had read the plot of the movie beforehand, I would have skipped it. And ten-or-so minutes into the film, it seemed like it was going to be a hackneyed, cloying been-there-done-that type of film. For some reason, I was enjoying it just enough not to stop watching. The film - be it considered a parable, a sports story or a bit of cinematic religious dogma - somehow transcends all of these. Yes, the characters are stereotyped, and the movie, as any first-year college student of writing could tell you, needs all of them to interplay with each other. Film-writing 101. The film, though, has sensitive writing (no freshmen college kids in the writing pool, obviously), great acting (Duvall and Black are both wonderful), phenomenal cinematography, and, in all, tends to be a touching film, rather than an annoying treacly bit of fluff. I never would have guessed from either the synopsis of the film nor from the first few minutes that it would make it to my "save for repeat viewing" bin.
