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.

Trivia

Filming took approximately three weeks to film. 18 days were spent filming the desert scenes and just a few days were spent for the indoor attic scenes. See more »

Goofs

The distributor cap they were looking for was an automotive cap. Actual air craft have a magneto and wiring that is shielded and is connected with a threaded connector. Anyway the one shown in the movie would not fit a airplane magneto. See more »

Won't Satisfy Everyone
12 May 2015 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Considering this site lists this movie as being made for television* I was expecting something along the lines of what you get on the SyFy Channel . Warning sign number one . I read the synopsis on this page and saw it featured a ballsy heroine in a post apocalypse scenario which conjures up images of teen marketed speculative action thrillers similar to THE HUNGER GAMES and THE MAZE RUNNER . Warning sign number two . On top of that this film is known by the dual title of THE WELL and THE LAST SURVIVORS which is never a good sign of a film so it looked like three strikes and your out but still decided to give it a chance and while I wasn't blown away in amazement I was occasionally surprised by THE WELL

Set in the near future mankind faces extinction due to a lack of precipitation making the land surface of the planet arid . Now human life is dependent on water , a human being can't live for four or five days without it and one wonders why governments haven't embarked on a crash program of building of water desalination plants to solve or at least lessen the problem . Perhaps they have but the film doesn't really give details of this and is left open ended and mainly unexplained . That said the enigma of the drought doesn't really damage the story and unlike the recent Brit flick HOW I LIVE NOW the apocalypse is fairly convincing and well done . The film concentrates on the trauma of teenage girl Kendal as she tries to survive against a gang of scavengers who want to rule the desert valley she lives in by stealing all water resources and murdering anyone who is of no use to them . In some ways it plays out like a revenge Western . I was taken aback in how gritty and gloomy the story was and it's not afraid to kill off characters . Haley Lu Richardson makes a somewhat uneven heroine and while Kendal is written and cast to audience identification for a female teen audience she wasn't really someone who I could relate to though I did appreciate the downbeat mood of the piece . That said - and I hope am not being patronising - the people who can identify with Kendal will probably be put off THE WELL / THE LAST SURVIVORS by the gloomy tone . In other words despite some strengths it won't satisfy all the audience all the time

* It was until I wrote this review I realised "TV" beside the title was IV . I should have gone to Specsavers
