Though this film was entirely shot in Canada's western province British Columbia, the setting is in Colorado which is a northwestern American state. The specific cities for its plot are Denver, Durango and Gunnison. See more »
I'm old (61) and have seen more than my fair share of these movies. I love dogs, but there's nothing really new here. The vets with PTSD (I'm also a vet) is an angle that the kids won't understand. And the gay interracial couple will also go over the kids' heads (I had to explain it to my wife after we got home. The hints were pretty subtle: hardly any "lifestyle being shoved down anyone's throats.") Ashely Judd, post-facelift plays a hot/weird looking mom (she's 50 in real life). Some haters on here equate her to a liberal BirdBox challenge where just looking at her is supposed to make you want to kill yourself. She was fine with a very bland script. As for the complaints about interracial couple and "token minorities" in Colorado, guess what? There are minorities living in Colorado in real life (my mom lived there for 20 years) whose existence is quite real and independent of any so-called tokenism or message sending haters would ascribe to it.
