Trivia

Director John Huddles told Producer Dan Grodnik they shouldn't shoot this movie in March, especially in the hills, because of the severe rains that were forecast. Grodnik said he only had a small window of availability for Minnie Driver and had to schedule this movie for that time. Grodnik went on to tell Huddles not to worry about a little rain. One rainy afternoon Grodnik got a call from his Line Producer saying the weather had become impossible in which to shoot. Grodnik told him to continue anyway. The Line Producer said he would like to, but the grip truck just washed away down a gully. See more »

a movie about getting uncorked
23 February 2005 | by DarthLuckinessSee all my reviews

The main characters in this movie can't seem to let go. Of their ambitions, their sorrows, or their perceptions of the way life should unfold. They all seem to be hung up on bygone expectations, missing out on potential happiness because they can't, or won't, be where they are while they're there. They are looking for a life that they don't yet realize they don't need, or want. The main character has abandoned his dreams a long time ago, as most in this film have to some degree, and is selfishly attempting to raise the money to buy an abandoned manganese mine. His uncle tries (in a way reminiscent of Andy Griffith) to force him to see what is right in front of his face. This movie has a dream like feel and it is hard to understand at first if you are not used to accents. One should not expect this movie to be action packed, but it is a heartwarming tale of a group of people trying to find their way through life, only to find it is not the epic and tragic journey they had once expected.
