Trivia

The youth in the 4-H scene are demonstrating Rabbit Showmanship. In a showmanship contest, youth are evaluated on how well they handle the animal, the health and condition of the animal, their ability to clean and groom the animal, and their knowledge about the animal. Youth showing rabbits move and position the rabbit to show these things to the judge. With correct handling and practice, the rabbits are cooperative and enjoy the attention. See more »

Meditative journey through the Pacific Northwest
8 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

The first 30 minutes of this film, I would rate as a 9 or even a 10. We are immersed in the soft, jade glow of the Pacific rainforest, and the quiet intimate life of two people who barely need language to communicate. Their relationship with nature is practical and intuitive rather than sentimental and abstract. When the characters do visit the city, it feels cold and alien, full of possibilities but also dangers.

Both actors are amazing, especially the young girl. For a young actress to express such mixed emotions clearly is very impressive. The movie has a very rooted sense of place. I was at a Q & A with the director and it was clear she made a very thorough effort to choose locations and actors (professional and amateurs) with an eye for realism.

I only knock this story because the arc is fairly predictable. For an American movie there is remarkably little plot and no villain or hero. It was hard to decide between a 7 and an 8.
