Truly Moving Picture
21 September 2006 | by tolliniSee all my reviews

I am a judge for the Indianapolis-based Heartland Film Festival. This feature film is a Crystal Heart Award Winner and is eligible to be the Grand Prize Winner in October of 2006. The Heartland Film Festival is a non-profit organization that honors Truly Moving Pictures. A Truly Moving Picture "…explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life."

Remember the ending of the film, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", when Paul Newman and Robert Redford are in Bolivia and they rush out the front door to escape many armed government troops? The story ends there and we just assumed that Butch and Sundance died and we were spared the gore.

"Outlaw Trail" assumes that Butch didn't die and in fact came back to his home in the West to make amends for his life of crime. Or, at least that is what Roy Parker thinks. Roy Parker is a teenage boy whose great uncle was Leroy Parker, better known as Butch Cassidy. It's 1951 and Roy lives in the same town as all the Parkers have lived, and Butch Cassidy has always been a major embarrassment to the family.

Roy is out to prove everyone is wrong about Butch Cassidy and he inadvertently gets help from the evil local museum director and his two criminal cohorts who Roy spots stealing artifacts from an old mining site. These three criminals are after the treasure that Butch Cassidy may have hidden and revealed in a map that is part of these stolen artifacts. But Roy is just out to clear his family name.

Roy and three friends alternately are chased by the three bad guys or chase the three bad guys in a plot that twists and turns all over Wyoming. The film plays like "Raiders of the Lost Ark." It is complicated, full of adventure, farcical at times, and relentlessly entertaining.

But ultimately it is a story about Roy looking for the good in someone that was always thought of as an outlaw. It's Roy's faith in his family's goodness that drives the story, and relying on this faith, Roy displays courage and heroism far beyond his age and experience in life.

FYI – There is a Truly Moving Pictures web site where there is a listing of past Crystal Heart Award winners as well as other Truly Moving Picture Award winners that are now either at the theater or available on video.
