Great Movie
31 December 2007 | by scott4240See all my reviews

Watched this movie at Sedona Film Festival in March 2007. The movie did very well and won the people's choice award.

Great story with very good storyline and character development. None of the flash from scene to scene to keep your attention tactics.

Very well done movie with a great lesson in living life.

The director provided a detailed account of the making of the film in a question and answer session after the viewing. He and a few others that worked with him on the film believe that they truly captured the essence of the island life in the film.

If memory serves me correctly, there were numerous people in the movie that were actually residents of the island.
