Storyline

Greener Mountains is the coming of age story of JP Barton, an adopted boy raised on a throwback Vermont family resort. Since being found as an infant by the mercurial aging owner, JP has essentially never left the resort grounds. But with the arrival of a young, free spirited New York artist, Alice Flynn, his sheltered life is suddenly turned upside down. Her arrival, plus a convergence of events, propels JP on a bumpy ride of self-discovery. It's not until JP accepts who he is, that he realizes what's most important to him. As a result he is finally able to win Alice and in the process save the resort. Greener Mountains is a story of finding out where you belong in the world and discovering that who you are is often more than enough. Written by Adam Selkowitz

Lyrical Coming of Age Rom-com
28 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

This was a beautifully shot,well written motion picture with heartfelt performances from most of the cast, especially the late Nan Martin who plays "M" ,the tough old lady who adopted JP(Chris Heuisler) and raised him at the rustic, but beautiful, Vermont resort from a boy to the young man at the time the story takes place.

The story itself is not that unique-- one of a person raised in a small little town ,in this case country Vermont resort, who meets and falls for a young lady, Alice(Emmy Winner Kimberly McCullough) but lies about his past and his college aspirations to try to impress the girl that he's more than a nobody from a nowhere town. The WAY the story unfolds with picturesque views of the country landscape (California subbing for Vermont) and intermittent flashbacks of JPs youth and he and M's touching close relationship, is special.

When the romance and the inheritance of the resort is being pulled away from JP with treacherous lies by the "blood" grandson Eric(Brad Raider) JP must decide if he can win the girl with the truth about himself and if he has what it takes to stand up to and against the savvy Eric from the NYC and keep the girl and his ties to the resort that helped form who he is.

Nan's performance reminds one a lot of the great Katherine Hepburn and is so real it either reminds you of your own grandma or makes you wish you had one like her. The ensemble including vets like Curtis Armstromg, M.Emmet Walsh among others brings the town/resort to life in a simple but genuine way. (tho some cynics might classify it as a bit corny.. I say, as the movie says..follow your heart)
