Storyline

KELLY is a beautiful young 16-year old who, like many teenagers, feels her life has become unbearably dark and depressed. Unable to make a meaningful connection with anyone around her, least of all her workaholic mom LAURA LEE, Kelly decides she'd rather be with her dad, who died several years before. The suicide attempt fails, but Laura Lee gets an urgent wake-up call and is determined to give Kelly some desperately needed attention. Hoping a change of scenery will help, mom and daughter rent a house for a long summer vacation. THE BIG HOUSE ON THE HILL offers peace, quiet, and ... mystery. They've barely unpacked their bags when Kelly catches a fleeting glimpse of SEAN, a good-looking young man who vanishes before she can catch up to him. Through several more encounters, Kelly develops a friendship with him, partly because of the physical attraction and partly because he is genuinely interested in her.

good till the last 20 or so minutes
2 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

16 year old Kelly (Lauren Birkell, soon to be seen in "The Woods" with Bruce 'the Man' Campbell) spending her deceased father's birthday alone, since her mom (Marina Sirtis) is busy with work. After a failed suicide attempt. the mom decides that her daughter needs a change of scenery at a summer rental house. While there the mom convinces Kelly to see a psychiatrist. For the most part I liked this film, the actors all did a pretty good job, and it was fairly engrossing. The last 20 or so minutes though was a drop in quality in plot if not in quality and didn't really seem to belong in the film at all. It didn't really make me totally dismiss the film, just dampened my opinion of it somewhat.

My Grade: C+
