Outstanding movie
10 November 2002 | by tdalstonSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when it came out. It had beautiful scenery and the song by John Denver Higher Ground. I later saw him in concert and bought the tape Higher Grounds that he later produced. I wish I could buy the movie and the tape again.
