Goofs

Tom's short fuse is set off again when he is going to be charged $49 for the entrance fee to the Grand Canyon National Park ($25 for the vehicle plus $12 for each for 2 "adults".) The fee would actually have been only $25, as per the Park's website fee schedule: "Grand Canyon National Park Vehicle Permit- $25.00 (U.S. Dollars) Admits one single, private, non-commercial vehicle and all its passengers." The entrance fee for "Individuals" entering without a vehicle (walking, bike, etc.,) is $12 each. See more »

American cinema at its finest
8 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A superbly acted and involving film that shows what great cinema can achieve when the writer-director at the helm has true vision. The story of 'Arcadia' is centred on a classic American family road trip, and anyone who's travelled with their siblings and parents on a long journey will recognise the authentic detail that forms the fabric of this film. But the director creates and builds a sense of tension from the opening scenes up to the finale, such that one feels completely involved with the characters - as we see ourselves and family shine through them. John Hawkes is engrossing as ever, and the actors that play his kids more than hold their own - this is their movie. Every moment reads truthful, every scene takes you deeper into the story. One can only wish for more feature films of this calibre.
