Goofs

In the scene where they found a deer that was killed and left behind by a hunter they refer to the deer as "she" all throughout the scene, but if you look at the shot that shows the deer's head the deer has small antlers. Since female deer don't have antlers so they should have been referring to it as "he". See more »

a stunning film that grows on you-it is a summer burner do not miss it!
9 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Without going into a lot of detail, this is the perfect movie for a summer day. And it just keeps on growing on you. The fact that there is another movie on this topic waiting to be made, well, that is often the case. The really exciting part of this is that Britt is not, drum roll, a star, but now she is. It can always be said that a film that is a stunning star vehicle for an actress, well, that only seems to come along every few years. And this ranks right at the top of those. Britt is not only beautiful and charismatic, but she obviously has a deep intelligence and creativity that is a perfect mix for this day and age. I say -rush out a see this, do not read about it, and try to remember one thing, great actresses are like great bottles of wine, they get better and better for a long time. Looking at what is coming for her, she is already very busy. And the fact that she hit this out of the park, is a great career lift off. Brit, this is your time.
