6 January 2013 | Syl
| A Small Film that packs a punch!
Granted, this film is based on the young adult novel entitled "Cold River." It's set in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York far away from New York City. It was also filmed on location as it follows a father, his young daughter Lizzie, and her stepbrother Tim as they rough it in 1923 in the woods. The story is deliverance for kids without being too gory. Although once the kids are on their own, they have to use their skills in order to survive in Adirondack Mountains. The other actors in the film include the wonderful and legendary Elizabeth Hubbard who plays mom and stepmother in the film. Even for a few minutes, she's worth watching. The kids' journey to survive is a long battle against nature and evil as well in the woods. The winter is pretty rough in upstate New York near Canada. The film director showed how brutal it can be while filming on location. Most films aren't made much in upstate New York.
