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

You will fall in love with this town. Or your own.
11 September 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This film contains a lot of cinematic memoirs that I used to take for granted. This is why Lost on Purpose got me back on track and made me trust again in the contemporary cinema. The photography is one of the things I fell in love with. I kinda feel this film bring back memories to everyone. And there's a nostalgia around there that has to do with the Town as a main character. It reminds me of those films I used to watch with my dad on Sunday mornings. The music fits perfectly in every single scene. And the performances of the (I must say) very well selected cast are out of this world. It's the first film in years I believe in every character on screen. The script is amazing; hilarious and sad at the same time. It's actually very rare a film can make this happen successfully and Lost on Purpose can do that and even more.

I highly recommend this film to everyone out there (specially those who want to feel the magic of the contemporary cinema again). And those who can relate to a town that is very alive and reminds us of home.
