Did You Know?


Interesting to learn that Dan the Elder in the film played by Dave Bald Eagle has his Belgian wife, Josie, playing in the film as the Museum shop woman. Such a juxtaposition to their roles in the film to be married! Apparently they were short of an actress, and Steve heard she once was one. There is a lot behind the making of this film which is fascinating. We learnt quite a bit of it at the Q&A session at the premier in Edinburgh. See more »

Great adaptation of the book!
25 July 2016 | by mtnsnowaveSee all my reviews

I was excited to hear this book was going to be made into a movie, although it took quite a while to get to this point. I joined the Kickstarter program and help funded it, thus I was able to screen it along with just a few others before it's official release.

Simpson does a fantastic job adapting th version of the book to the big screen. The acting was great, and the cinematography was outstanding. I thought the script was very good too, but I felt it could have used a few more of the 'impactful scenes' in the book to have a touch more profoundness...(not that the ones in the movie don't)... but I understand, there's only so much you can take from a book and put into a 2 hour movie. Those are tough decisions to make, and overall.. it a great job was done!

All in all, this was a great movie, especially considering the timeframe/budget that they had to work with. Thanks Steven for putting your heart and soul into this and making it happen. You did a wonderful job.
