Trivia

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 »

Wonderful movie!
16 February 2017 | by BuffySyd35See all my reviews

I heard from two dear friends about the Kickstarter to get this movie made and the rest is history, as they say. I received my Blu-ray of the movie a few weeks ago and was finally able to sit down and watch it. It is a wonderful film that compliments the wonderful book. If you liked the book at all this is a must watch!

It starts off slowly, but that is to be expected and in doing so the film draws you into the world subtly. This is the second movie I have watched in the last several months that made me feel like I was watching a documentary more than a movie (the other movie was Loving). Everything felt so real! I felt like a fly on the wall simply watching Dan, Grover, and Nerburn. They felt like real people and not actors. The music, cinematography, use of sound, all of it coalesced to create this real world. It almost seemed like if I talked they would all be able to hear me.

I love movies and have several that engross me every time I watch, but only a select few (this and Loving) have hit me with how subtle and yet how very real they were. Watching this made the book come to life in a truly real way and it was wonderful. The slow pace worked perfectly as, like the book, you want to soak it all in and really hear and absorb what is going on and being talked about. Just like the book it leaves a lasting impression that ripples far beyond the end credits.
