Storyline

A recent coal mining accident has killed several miners and left the small town community scarred and traumatized. The wealthy mining executive responsible for the accident, Bill Doyle, wants to pretend that it never happened, referring to the mining families as "trailer trash". His wife Diana and son JT know better, though. Diana is drowning in guilt and feels socially awkward around the other rich snobs she used to be friends with. She copes with it by having an affair with Amos, the lone survivor of the mining accident who now walks with a limp and lives with his dying father. JT is worried that his father will go to prison, and takes out his anger on the mining families' children, especially Owen Briggs. Owen is a young boy who lost his father in the disaster. He lives with his bad-tempered aunt, his grieving mother, and his little brother James, who has Down's Syndrome. One day Owen is in the woods with James, and he gets into a fight with JT, accidentally going too far... Written by Gasmaskproductionsbooks

Viewed Premier in Beckley, WV Feb 6 ,2015
7 February 2015 | by (Beckley, WV) – See all my reviews

Saw premier of Little Accidents last night at Marquee Cinemas in Beckley WV. This movie was filmed locally and is a deeply moving story of the aftermath of a mining accident. The emotional punch of the character's stories is gut felt and stays with you long after the movie has ended. We in Raleigh Co WV are so excited that director Sara Colangelo wrote and directed such a poignant, realistic view of the locale and personality of the characters without staging "hillbilly" attributes. The locations are real and so are the actor's portrayals of the characters. Excellent acting by cast. This director has talented eye for the artistry of a scene as every scene was beautifully staged. We were dumbfounded she chose to attend the premier here, where she worked directing! Definitely a winner!! R. Absher
