The movie pretends to take place in US (but is filmed in Belgium and Ireland). In the railway depot you can see an old yellow railway locomotive with the inscription 'Rheinbraun'. Rheinbraun is a coal mining company in Germany. See more »
I watched the movie cold with no idea what it was about. I thought the story was great and the acting and production was very good. OK the CGI was a bit low budget but I don't think that's what the film was about. When I put two and two together and realized what was really going on the light bulb shone. The young actors should be commended for their performances. For me it was a very satisfying movie and an interesting way of telling a story. Then again I'm just simple folk. Well done to all involved
