a solid flick that would be worth watching rental
13 October 2004 | by motwSee all my reviews

I personally enjoyed the down home quality of the film. I think that for such a low budget and relatively unknown actors, this film really shined. I was pleasantly surprised after watching the film, especially with the negative comments from people here. The Prodigal son aspect really appealed to me and I thought that they did not overplay the situation, but instead it came off as a nice sub-plot. The relationship between the siblings was nicely played. The acting was enjoyable, and it was fun to see Louis Herthum of Murder She Wrote Fame acting in this film. Overall a good movie worth renting.
