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 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
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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angels Crest was amazingly touching and sad. A must see! November 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The young father in the movie was amazing. His portrayal of the young father was both heartwarming and heartbreaking. As a parent, we all make decisions that could have disastrous outcomes...taking your eyes off your child for one second in the park, etc...Wonderful supporting actors too:)

A true story based on Paul and Gage Wayment - Angels crest tells their story. Very well acted. Very well written and produced. Everything about this movie was so true to the case. A drunk for a mother...a little boy is placed with his father. The movie starts with a touching scene right after the little boy's birthday party......and it is early the next day.....little "Ethan" wakes dad up as he had urinated in his bed. Dad lovingly gets up....changes his pants and lets him sleep in his bed. Ethan then wakes dad up as he is excited about the snow. They leave to look at the snow. Dad locks up the truck...with Ethan asleep inside....then tragedy strikes and the little boy is nowhere to be found. He is found the next day....his father find him. The town is torn in two. Some say he was negligent....others say...any parent could have made the same mistake. The viewer is left to choose. Who was guilty? Who is innocent? If you have ever been a parent...then you know how easy it is to become a phone call while your kid is in the tub.....or a conversation with another adult....while your out camping...and a toddler gets too close to the lake edge. What makes it worse is that.....all this happens within the confines of a small town. Small towns where everyone knows everyone's business and the "righteous" are quick to judge. If you grew up in a small know what I mean. This movie stayed very close to the story of the Wayments. The movie and the true story will break your heart....not only for the little boy who lost his life....but for the father who took responsibility and could not forgive himself!!
