Storyline

A recent coal mining accident has killed several miners and left the small town community scarred and traumatized. The wealthy mining executive responsible for the accident, Bill Doyle, wants to pretend that it never happened, referring to the mining families as "trailer trash". His wife Diana and son JT know better, though. Diana is drowning in guilt and feels socially awkward around the other rich snobs she used to be friends with. She copes with it by having an affair with Amos, the lone survivor of the mining accident who now walks with a limp and lives with his dying father. JT is worried that his father will go to prison, and takes out his anger on the mining families' children, especially Owen Briggs. Owen is a young boy who lost his father in the disaster. He lives with his bad-tempered aunt, his grieving mother, and his little brother James, who has Down's Syndrome. One day Owen is in the woods with James, and he gets into a fight with JT, accidentally going too far... Written by Gasmaskproductionsbooks

Little Accidents: A great piece of art.
4 March 2015 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

Don't watch it if you are not in the mood (if you don't want to feel sorrow) but as soon as you feel serene enough I strongly suggest that you watch this film because I'm sure you will appreciate it very much.

I really can't understand how it got only 8 reviews (at the time I'm writing) on IMDb. Which I consider a sign of deep disinterest.

Actually it's a great piece of art that deals finely and very sincerely with human condition. The story is meaningful and touches many aspects of life. Among them (and I found this the most interesting), it shows how sorrow can make you feel more alive.

Female Authors (Sara Colangelo both wrote and directed it) are becoming better than men! This is amazing and (being myself a man) a little bit destabilizing.

Finally (and I know I shouldn't say this) I don't want to dispute Academy decisions but on my opinion Jacob Lowland's is by far best male actor's performance in 2014. Who cares if he is just 19…
