It took awhile to get into this movie but ended interestingly.
Buster
While poetic, it lends this slight picture an air of pomposity that doesn't serve the film's more simple themes.

A heartwarming and emotional story of one man who is a successful businessman, yet on the inside he's shattered glass! An intriguing story about his life, and how he finds passion to survive the pain and suffering of his past. He attempts to resurrect his life by purchasing a sailboat. Although disturbed by nightmares and continued to be haunted about his past, he finds a beacon of hope through repairing his boat as he repairs the broken pieces of himself. Packed with drama throughout, Enjoyable, Great acting performance and Inspiring. Highly Recommended!

There really are no words to describe this film that would do it justice, in my opinion. Beyond Josh Lucas good looks, his acting was amazing and poignant. You really have to see this AND be open to feeling this film. But, lets be honest, this movie is not for everyone. Im my opnion, you will get out of it what you are willing to put into it. Its not an action packed movie, its not a thriller nor is it your average love story. It is, however a poignant and moving film full of metaphor and self reflection about love and loss. The film strikes a chord with me- in as much as Josh Lucas is a man who succumbs to a journey while tormented by guilt and loss. He manages to find and forgive himself along the way. If you're open to actually getting involved in a film and you allow yourself to feel it, then you'll love it as much as I did. This has easily become one of my top 5 fave films of all time and I reccommend it highly.

Give yourself plenty of unrushed time on this one. Lucas's performance is gripping as a man drowning in the extremes of surviving that which does not seem survivable. The haunting ways life finds motivation to take care of itself. Loved the extremes, the remoteness of location, the way small but critical kindnesses appeared when needed. Profoundly moving moments....Dialogues short, terse, dry witted or just without pretense. Much is revealed...unhurridly. Locals prod gently, carrying their own deeply complicated histories in wise respectful silence. Select, superb cast. Found myself longing for more repairing scenes, juxtaposing the discipline of restoration with patching human abysses. Lucas elevated this story to award winning levels. Director Peter Vanderwall is masterful with mostly nonverbal, primal survival scenes. Hide Away is a rare treasure of a film.

None of the characters say very much in the mournful, but picturesque, indie "Hide Away" but when they do they're likely to quote from Homer's "The Odyssey" and Longfellow's "The Children's Hour." While poetic, it lends this slight picture an air of pomposity that doesn't serve the film's more simple themes. "Hide Away," in truth, isn't much of a movie. It is more of a mood, a sullen atmospheric experience that is pretty to look at but doesn't amount to much in the end. Luckily, the film stars Josh Lucas. An interesting and underrated actor, Lucas is generally fascinating to watch and his participation in "Hide Away" almost makes it a satisfying experience. As a minor character study, the film gains some traction. But the experience reads like an introspective short story about mourning and even at only 88 minutes, the film feels overlong.

Originally titled "A Year in Mooring," that tells you everything you need to know about the film plotwise. A man spends a year in relative isolation repairing a boat. Lucas plays this wreck of a man haunted by demons from his past. Although nothing is spelled out in the beginning, it will be clear to anyone watching what has happened. If, however, you are waiting for a big dramatic revelation--the moment passes later in the film without much explanation or fanfare. Drunk and disconnected, Lucas interacts sporadically with a diner proprietress (Ayelet Zurer), a sailing veteran (James Cromwell) and a divorced boating neighbor (Jon Tenney). While the dialogue is minimal and the conversations are superficial, Lucas starts to eventually take his place in this small community. And he decides to get his boat into sailing condition.

As Lucas rebuilds the boat, so does he rebuild his soul.

I liked the suspense in this movie. It kept me guessing why the guy had moved to live by the lake for a whole year and evaded people he knew. It was worth watching.

Awesome. Hauntingly beautiful. The cinematography is almost poetic. I have watched it several times and will probably never get tired of it.

The movie is about a man who has suffered. He buys a boat uncertain what he will do. He begins to fix her up and in this fixing he begins to heal himself. His soul has left his body from the pain of children lost in a car crash. Helpless to bring them back, he leaves the world of time to lose whats left of him, in the murky cold of sea and snow. Winter and poetry. A restaurant with a girl who lets people be. Who sits and stares into peace of quiet and water lapping. Work turns into art and beauty. The old and the young. Memories. Escape and healing. The home cooking. Support that is not words.

A film that is deep and show's how suffering can be redemptive. I loved it. Not your Hollywood movie. If you are into Joseph Campbell, or Carl Jung, you will most likely, like this movie. I feel it is about the dark night of the soul that some can go thru in this life. It is great to see a movie with some meaning to it! Thanks Chris, keep making these.
