The movie takes place in Missouri. However, a sign that says "Maximum 30" is visible near the lake where the accident was to have taken place. This a form of speed limit sign (using kilometers per hour) used in Canada. See more »
Excellent drama with occasional ambiguous messages and melodrama
This is a wonderfully worthwile film, with good acting and a well-composed score. However, I do believe the script and the cinematography in certain parts could have been better. Also, the acting was a little melodramatic at times, and I believe the messages the film was attempting to promote could have been more effectively conveyed. Besides these things, I also have an issue with the occasional instances of crude language that occur in the film. Other than that, this is a great film, with good drama and emotional moments, appropriate and enjoyable for the whole family.
