Editorial Reviews

The small working-class town of Angels Crest is a tight-knit community resting quietly in one of the vast and stunningly beautiful valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Ethan (Thomas Dekker), one of the town's residents, is a young father but not much more than a kid himself. He has no choice but to look after his three-year-old son Nate, since mom Cindy (Lynn Collins) is an alcoholic. Then one snowy day, Ethan's good intentions are thwarted by a moment of thoughtlessness, resulting in tragedy. A local prosecutor (Jeremy Piven) haunted by his past goes after Ethan, and the ensuing confusion and casting of blame begins to tear the town apart.

4.0 out of 5 stars I was born in a small town... January 2, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
...so I know the all too often disturbing and sad dynamics an event like a missing child can have on locals. Angels Crest is an under-the-radar film about one such event. When a father innocently takes his three year old son into the woods to play in the snow and the child goes missing, we see a small town come together to search for the child - including the alcoholic mother and the father's friends.

It is through this union that small subplots are developed. We see the fragile state of the child's mother as she deals with the news of the missing child and a strained relationship with her own mother.

We see the father, lost and blaming himself, as the local district attorney presses charges against him and the father learns that one of his best friends had been sleeping with the mother.

Other than this, we also catch a glimpse at a lesbian couple in town, one whose own teenage son comes to stay with his pregnant girlfriend, and another woman with children who runs the local diner. The district attorney also has a past of his own that deals with children but goes unrevealed.

Though these minor plots lack depth, as a whole the movie is very raw and haunting. Definitely worth a look just for the breathtaking imagery in the mountains and of small town living which definitely breathes real life into the film as a whole. Be prepared to grab the tissues for a disturbing ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars HERE COMES THE PAIN! October 31, 2012
Format:DVD
This movie gripped me in my stomach and heart and still hasn't let go. I dislike when folks compare the original book to movie: but here I go.
I read the novel; I saw the movie. It's rare when I say, "I THINK THE MOVIE IS BETTER THAN THE BOOK." There! I said it and I mean it.
In the movie, I got to really know ETHAN (Thomas Dekker), hence I was with him all the way and feeling his anguish and hopelessness. Dekker added so many levels to this character: what an actor. I want to see what else he does in the future (and that's him writing and singing the closing credits song.)
The novel did not focus too much on Ethan; its' chapters give everyone equal story time. Ethan was less fleshed out than the others: a disappointment when I read the book. However, Thomas Dekker, and the film adaptation, had me totally WITH Ethan. I'm hurting for months after seeing this flick. And the ending, in both book and movie, seemed inevitable and honest.

The character CINDY (Lynn Collins) is so real -- I swear--I've dated young woman like her. Collins plays it for real and she's fascinating to watch on screen.
To sum up: I thought the movie's emotional IMPACT was much more powerful than the novel.

One of my few gripes of the movie version is the character ROXANN (Kate Walsh). Her movie character is played like a one-note lesbian who looks pissed most of the time. Typical Roxann scene: when Jane's pregnant daughter-in-law asks Roxann if she wants a bite of her hot-dog, Roxann's snarls, "I don't do dick." That about sums up her movie character. And it's not even a funny line. Whereas in the novel, Roxann is more fleshed out (her hobby is bees, hives, making honey, reflecting on the inevitable death of drones and and protecting the queen bee, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect storytelling December 12, 2011
By W. coco
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Thomas Dekker the male lead is perfect in his role, his whole countenance(sic) reaks of laconic, chronic beaten-down-ness but one who loves his son. He is backed by heavy talent like Mira Sorvino and talented no-names. A gem of a movie, authentic, low key, heartfelt, and enriching to watch despite the tradgedy it revolves around. Can't go wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars A tragic tale May 27, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
What happens when you leave a child unattended for a few minutes, only to find out that the child has ventured out of the truck, in the cold winter, and is found too late. With this premise, the movie is about the parents, both a little screwed up, and certainly not parents of the year. The father, who is responsible for the event, never quite makes it through, and one can tell ahead of time where this story is heading. Sad, a great reminder that children must be under supervision at all times, and more depressing than anything else. 3 Stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potential wasted May 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The story was an interesting interwoven character sketch. Some characters were poorly written or acted but the overall effect was interesting. The ending of the film, however, really smacked of eith running out of time or out of money, rather than a conscious and crafted conclusion. The director toyed with several plot lines, [self-delusion, betrayal, conspiracy, insular community, etc] but did not do justice to any of them. Good try, but a better director or screenplay would have been more satisfying. There is a difference between leaving the audience to draw its own conclusions and just leaving the audience with a lot of unresolved threads and bewilderment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well acted film March 6, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'd never heard of this film before, but decided to give it a try. I was hooked on it from the first few minutes of the story. It was so well acted that my heart was breaking for the main character who lost his son. I believe the father was played by Thomas Dekker. His portrayal of the heart broken, guilty ridden father had me crying. A great movie.
