The snow scene was shot against a giant green wheat field which acted as a green screen for computer generated snow. It was 82 degrees that day! DP Robert Hayes came up with the idea. See more »

Is that truly a movie!!!?
The movie seems to be more of a Sunday sermon rather than a work of art. It perfectly fits the intentions of preaching the almighty will of god to the infidel and the shaky ones. It replaces the human will, that is normally filled in with many various sources including the belief in super beings with the inevitable and only one source of strength people can get from their gospels' clerics As the movie synopsis goes: "Life can change in an instant, and turn your whole world upside down. And as the preacher would tell: It's all god's will" So that's what happens to the living American dream that is the Midwestern firefighter Jeff Elliott and his wife who live with their beautiful, healthy children, family farm, horses, sports, church groups, and all other typical components of that dream. One day though their terrific teenage son Eric "Hoovey" Elliott collapses and is rushed to the hospital, where doctors find a tumor as big as an orange in his brain. This life threatening operation renders Hoovey short of many key capabilities, yet what keeps him going is the faith he has in God not the power of will that would normally be available both for religious and non religious ones
