Storyline

Our story takes place in the fertile, San Joaquin Valley. Fueled by gin and sheer determination, Elizabeth James (Ms. Liz) operates her third generation dairy farm outside the region's domineering co-ops. To help keep the place afloat, she's employed five renegade ranch hands. These boys have put a pin in responsibility and opted to stretch out the party as long as possible. Unfortunately, women, booze, and fisticuffs can only lead to one outcome: trouble. With the dairy farm reporting its third straight deficit year, Ms Liz is attracting some unwanted attention. Delbert Furgeson, the owner of the area's largest co-op, is pushing to buy her out. This only incenses the prideful Ms Liz and starts a volatile feud between the two. Sharing the narrative are the ranch hands. Randel and Rooker Lee are brothers caught in the crossfire of their parents' separation. Leslie Williams and Jackie Remmington are aspiring musicians, trying not to get caught up in their own success. Wade Kitchanski is... Written by Anonymous

A funny, heart-warming film.
8 September 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

LOST ON PURPOSE is a wonderful film! You would never know that it had a low budget because the production values are so high. It is beautifully written and directed, has gorgeous cinematography and is perfectly cast. The storyline is captivating, the music is lovely and the acting is truly superb. It is funny and moving and even heartbreaking at times. The boys all share a wonderful dynamic and you can see that they had fun working together, it really shines through in the film.

A great job by everyone involved - I am so in love with this film that I am about to watch it for the second time today! Do yourself a favor and watch this movie, it has something for everyone and you won't be disappointed. I really enjoyed it!
