Grandpa, Teenager, and a misplaced dog - what could go wrong?
Actress Dora Madison Burge of "Friday Night Lights" stars as Madison (Maddy), a spoiled big city 16-year-old with a full teenage social life. But when her mom is deployed overseas for three months, Maddy is sent to live with her hard-nosed grandfather (Lance Henriksen of ALIENS) at his rural cattle ranch.
In this strange environment with no Wi-Fi phone/computer access, Maddy will meet cute 17-year-old dog trainer Eli (Cody Linley of "Hannah Montana" and CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN), grow to love and respect her stubborn grandpa, and bond with an old cattle dog who just may have the potential to be a blue ribbon champion. They bond through their mutual sense of displacement and the two outcasts form this special bond in this heartwarming story about the meaning of family, the courage of outcasts, and the promise of new beginnings.
It is refreshing to see a movie that understands what its charter is and seizes it. Yes, if one is gaming, the movie is predictable but the writing, acting interplay with actors in pivotal scenes, and the un-disruptive ending leaves the viewer with hope and a title for family viewing.
