As Ralph's granddaughter, I know the movie has details that correctly depict their survival experience. The sardine cans were recovered from the crash site a few years ago. The gash in the trees and plane wreckage allowed family members to find the site and start the reconstruction project on the plane. Ralph was known as a man of few words; Asner's flaw is not properly portraying the strength in Ralph's proactive and resourceful role in keeping the two alive. It is based upon Helen's book about her survival experience in the Yukon Territory of Alaska. Unfortunately, the movie contains actors who are a bit annoying, but reflective of the actions performed by the Helen and Ralph. The cinematography was not very interesting, but it shows what happened that winter. I feel that the movie should be remade to give the experience more credibility to the movie watcher. People who have seen this movie in theater know that it is much more interesting to be able to see the vast winter scene on a large color screen. I am surprised that other people have seen this film.
