Editorial Reviews

This touching coming of age story follows four 13 year old boys on a weekend adventure (in 1987) into the mountains of Colorado in search of a lost father and his plane. The unexplained mystery of Colin's father and his small Cesna that disappeared seven years ago compels a boy to find an answer, or at least try. And true friends understand ... so together, they leave. Adventure, struggle, fear, and hope binds a story of real lives and leaves a healing memory of youth and redemption as the discover even more than they set out to find.

Format: DVD
In the coming-of-age movie genre, there are plenty of contenders in the mediocre category, which begs the question: do we really need one more? Fern Hill tries hard to be a great film, but it falls far short of that goal. From the moment the splash screen appears on your TV, along with the presumptuous self-comparison to Stand by Me, the viewer is almost certain to be disappointed. Fern Hill, try as it may, is no Stand by Me.

Hindered by a budget that may have only broken 3 or 4 piggy banks, and a weak script that tries too hard to be something it's not, Fern Hill is a wannabe film that, despite its shortcomings, still has moments of true greatness. Like the scene in which 13-year-old Seth (Daniel James) holds his mother's abusive boyfriend at gunpoint and orders him out of the house. He then takes his little sister to a neighbor's house while his mother sobs helplessly on the couch, a victim of her own co-dependence. It's a shame that the rest of this flawed film can't maintain this same level of intensity and drama -- but don't blame the on-screen talent. This film was sabotaged by the adults behind the scenes who wrote, produced, and directed it.

The comparisons to Stand by Me are as obvious as they are numerous. We have the smart, sensitive kid (the soft-spoken David James), the troubled kid from a broken home (Daniel James), the quiet, introverted kid (Myles Bruce), and of course, the ever-essential fat kid (Mackenzie Harden). (Has anyone ever made a coming-of-age film without a fat kid?) They convene on a quest to find Colin's father who died in a plane crash 8 years before. (Colin is the smart, sensitive one.) Along the way, we are subjected to some of the parallel ordeals that plagued the young protagonists in Stand by Me -- but without the obvious dangers.

This coming of age movie was compelling watching. It is beautifully shot with excellent performances all around. It takes place in the mountains of Colorado and captures a sense of place and time that is quite magical. I was surprised at the depth and range of emotions that these young actors were able to capture.

The biggest downfall was the cloying voiceover that over-explained everything. What a pity that the director had to interject this heavy handed imposing voice rather than letting the viewer figure the film out for themselves. Without it this film would be excellent.

Bad script, bad direction, bad acting, bad filming. This film tried to be a lot of things and failed at all of them. The writing is wooden, the kids don't look natural, the narration is stilted, the techincal quality of the DVD is very low. Then there's the "trust in God" message woven into it. Save your money.

A wonderful story of 4 young boys in their early teens. Even though they are from different backgrounds they remain life long friends. One of the boys father was in an airplane accident 8 years earlier but the wreck was never found. The boys search an area of wilderness where the son believes his father may have gone down. The four boys leave on a search for the missing plane. They bond and become closer and have to trust and depend on each other. I first borrowed it from the library and my granddaughters and I loved it so much we had to have it in our personal library. We loved it!!!
