Storyline

This is a story about grief and all the emotions it entails. A successful businessman attempting to resurrect his life buys and boards a dilapidated sailboat in a remote area on the shore of one of the Great Lakes, North America. A business associate comes to urge him to return to work, but relents when he sees his state. This is when viewers get more of a hint of the tragedy that he has experienced. Rather than push him further, the associate agrees to let him take all the time he needs. He passes the winter in this desolate location grieving desperately and gradually repairing the boat though other boaters have left for the winter. In the meantime, he makes friends of a widower sailor and a world-weary waitress at the marina. Through the slow moving yet beautiful and well played drama in this gorgeous lake setting, viewers come to know how he has reached this point in his life. By the early spring, he is feeling stronger and is ready to face society again. He sells the sailboat, now... Written by Red Perl

Excellent, moving, haunting...
31 May 2012 | by smithr1223See all my reviews

A man arrives at a dock, in suit & tie and carrying his suitcase, buys a boat as-is, he seems haunted but we don't yet know why. If you've ever experienced deep grief or a need to hideaway and heal, this film will have a deeper meaning for you, if you've not yet experienced those tortured emotions in life you may not yet understand fully the emotional depths this film represents. I've been there, I am there, and felt the film all the more meaningful for my own experiences. The waterside setting is magical and the story plays against the backdrop of its setting (Traverse City, Michigan) and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, The Children's Hour, which given Longfellow's own sad history gives the film even deeper resonance. The typical Hollywood films you'll barely remember a month later but Hide Away will have a lasting impact and this, this, is the film you want to see this Summer. Best work I've seen from Josh Lucas and James Cromwell is, even more than usual, so very memorable as The Ancient Mariner. I'd originally rated this film an 8 but, after viewing it a second time, I changed my review to a 10. Now I'm left wondering what my own boat is...
