Storyline

Peter is burned out: finishing med school at UCLA, failing the bedside manner class his father teaches, no sleep in days. He spends the night with Bogart, a woman he's just met, and the next day, sleepily gets in her car. He wakes up in Arcata, where Bogart's foster family lives in the woods: Max, his daughter, mom, and step dad. They grow marijuana for their own consumption, except for Max, who has planted six hidden patches for one big score. Bogart hates pot farming - feds are on constant patrol - so she splits, leaving Peter to depend on Max for a ride to the bus. A day stretches into two, and Peter puts off leaving. A reckoning with his dad is inevitable: is Peter's rebirth possible? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[first lines]
Bogart: [in doctor's office] When I came home from the clinic everyone was asleep. Normally they'd hear my truck. We live in the middle of nowhere, so... I parked it about a half a mile down the road and I walked home, but my boyfriend heard. He hears everything. When he came in to see what was wrong, I just tried to pretend to be asleep. But I couldn't hold it in, and I started to cry.
Peter: Go on...
Bogart: Sorry. I was balling my eyes out, and uh, he held me. And I wished... I wished I hadn't done it....

Incredible Cinematography!!!
22 December 2008 | by info-18270See all my reviews

This film is worth seeing whether you've ever been to Humboldt or not. In fact, its greatest transcendence is that of a move that features pot culture without exploiting it, over-stating it, supporting it or protesting it. The acting is all pitch-perfect, seriously admirable performances especially by the couple who own the ranch that the star finds himself at.

See and support this film for Humboldt & Arcata, CA;St. Louis, MO; off-the-grid living, and taking the path that moves you.

Awesome film, look for this director duo to release a screen adaptation of the Cardinals vs. Cubs novel "Three Night in August."

Who will play the corrupt-yet-lovable Tony LaRussa?
