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.

...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.

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.

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.

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.

ANGELS CREST is not a perfect movie: there are so many undeveloped sidebars that keeping everyone in a place where they seem to fit into the tale is difficult. But there are some powerful performances here and some cause for reflection that makes the movie very worthwhile watching. Based on the novel by the same name written by Leslie Schwartz, adapted for the screen by Catherine Trieschmann, and directed by Gaby Dellal, the story deals with numerous interactions of a small town populated with alcoholics, drug abusers, adulterers, and other strange types and how they deal with a tragedy that makes no sense.

Nate Denton (Ameko Eks Mass Carroll) is a 3 year old son of Ethan Denton (Thomas Dekkar in a breakout performance that deserves attention) who awakens one morning in his pathetic home to tell his beloved single dad that it is snowing. The father/son bond is strong and Ethan dresses them both to go out to view the beauty of the snowy countryside in their old truck. When they arrive at a perfect spot, Ethan turns to the backseat to take Nate out to make snowmen, but Nate has fallen asleep in this safety car seat. Ethan makes the truck warm, locks the truck and walks out to view the spectacle of winter, the deer, and the eloquent mountains. In a few minutes he returns - and Nate is gone! Ethan is terrified, begins shouting his son's name as he searches for him. The town is alerted and a search party begins. Nate's mother alcoholic mother Cindy (Lynn Collins) is notified of Nate's missing and begins her tirade on every person she meets. After an overnight search for Nate, Ethan discovers Nate's frozen body and is devastated. Ethan is taken into custody for a death stemming from negligence and the townspeople form sides as to Ethan's guilt.
