Summer vacation in Mountain's Edge, a sprawling two-square-mile subdivision of three-story half-million-dollar catalogue homes in suburban Denver. At the heart of the subdivision, its own fleet of soccer fields, manicured and gleaming - a game in play, a swarm of 12-year-olds running from end to end, moms and dads in that "off-duty Hollywood" look. At the foot of the subdivision: The desert to one side, long and dry, and endless-looking. To the other side, a span of high-desert foothills, rolling upward into the greener, higher mountains. It is here that two sets of kids - neighbors in both landscape and loss - will wake one morning to find that their paths begin to resemble that of a character in their favorite mythological book series. What they don't yet know is that an invisible darkness following them is what they make it out to be - themselves, their fears about their parents, the frequency of change in their lives, and the instability of a world lived on the mountain's edge. Written by J. Reuben Appelman

Not interesting, not appropriate for suggested age group
4 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie centers on a cast of young kids but deals in a heavy way with philosophical and social topics for the expected kids' age range. it is not entertaining, it is not fun to watch, it is not engrossing or interesting. It has some interesting and potentially important concepts but no one in our family or the room enjoyed watching it. It's not funny or enlightening to watch. I'm honestly not sure what the heavy-handed point of this movie was, but watching it was a complete and negative waste of time. Apparently there's a minimum length required for review on this site, I wish there was a minimum level of quality required for movies or that they were at least required to have a point. Entertainment is a great justification and a worthy one. Slapping together a few ideas and some heavy (assuming this suggests meaningful) ideas does not automatically make for a watchable, meaningful or interesting movie.
