middling TV movie
5 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Nicholas Boyd (Barry Watson) had a successful book but has struggled to write since then. He returns to his childhood home on San Juan Islands, Washington State after his uncle Charlie's death. He had a complicated relationship with his uncle blaming him for a tragedy. Nick is left with the local paper but the property is in debt. Banker Rebecca Fink and developer Graham Westlake offer to take it off his hands for $10k. Nick loses his teaching job. Uncle Charlie's lawyer Libby (Stefanie von Pfetten) tells him that Charlie had fought against the development. Roger Calhoun (Lorne Cardinal) keeps stealing a horse after losing his ranch to Westlake.

Barry Watson is a nice B-level lead. That's kind of this movie. There isn't much drama but it is nice. There is a little bit of quirky and a personal struggle that Watson is able to milk. The villains are not well drawn and played by lesser actors. Both Watson and Stefanie von Pfetten have a nice easy photogenic charm which keeps this from grinding to a halt.
