Move over Hollywood, here comes tri-cities plus Latah!
I have read many reviews and they are all very positive. I would like to stress the point that it is not just a very sweet movie that is suitable for the whole family. I enjoyed it for the character development, authenticity, historical accuracy and illustration of both sides to a very difficult situation facing these people. The movie did not try to portray anyone as totally evil or good, right or wrong. That period of American history has always seemed a bit fuzzy to me and the film created an incredibly sharp view of America that would be of great interest to anyone. Beautifully photographed, interesting characters, humor, tragedy, mystery, nostalgia and history without cloying sweetness or the typical Hollywood "embellishments!" The "whole" family will enjoy this movie not because of what's "not" in it, but because of what "is" in it! The cast is a superb blend of "known" with "unknown" actors to flesh out multiple stories. This is what makes it a movie for the whole family. Every family member will have a character or story they can relate to while they watch them all come together at the end of the film.
