A touching and warm film that is well worth watching
10 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Redwood Highway is a gem amongst the crass and loud movies of the multiplex.

Filled with "real" people, and real emotions, this film takes you on a simple but profound journey that everyone who has a family can relate to.

Shirley Knight is perfect in this role, playing her character's mix of stubbornness and drive in a way that ultimately makes you understand her on multiple levels. None of us are simple creatures, and the writers of this film did an excellent job of portraying the many facets we all have.

It was great to see Tom Skerrit in a significant role- he has always been a favorite of mine.

I would like to add that the film is beautifully shot as well. I have never been to Oregon, but the film makes it look simply breathtaking. I also found the dream/flashback sequences to be exceptionally well done; adding to the emotional weight of the story, without every distracting from it.

Overall, if you enjoy a rich and rewarding story, filled with people you can relate to and care for, I can't recommend this movie enough. Enjoy!
