Storyline

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left. Written by Doug

The well falls short
18 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was on the verge of being a very good one but didn't have quite enough to push it the extra mile. It was a simple story but well made, the original score was my favorite part of the movie. The sets were also a great addition to the movie especially since it used actual farms that were abandoned due to the drought in California.

In the last half of the movie the main villain mentions how he feels about his job. It felt out of place but if they had more background story for the main characters, and sooner in the movie, it would have been more interesting. I understand the directors point on why we don't need back story for post apocalyptic films however in this case some back story for the main characters would have helped.

Another aspect that didn't work in this film was the child actor, granted as I stated before, it would have been better with some background.

I would personally wait to rent this movie or watch it on demand. And while this is under the horror tag, I would personally put it under a Thriller.
