Editorial Reviews

Sara (Scottie Thomson) and Lily (Madeline Zima) are two sisters from a small, lakeside town that lead two different lives: Sara, a successful, Los Angeles attorney and Lily, a local art teacher who never left home. But when the father of the two sisters unexpectedly dies, Sara returns to Virginia to help settle his estate. Through the guidance of their father's spirit, the two women and their mother, Vivian (Jane Seymour), will finally discover what being a family truly means. Ben Savage (''Boy Meets World''), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Richard Riehle (Office Space) and Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) co-star in this heartwarming story about trust, forgiveness and confronting the past to embrace your future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lake Effects - Great indie movie August 17, 2012
By Karen P
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is a great family movie that delves into parent/child relationships. This movie explores the return of a woman to her hometown and the conflicts she faces within herself about her decision to leave home and explore the world as a young adult. She deals with grief, love, and her perception of relationships and the world around her throughout the movie. The actors all did a great job, and this one does pull at the heartstrings. I highly recommend this one.

Great movie, very heart wrenching at times, but also sweet and heartwarming. It was so much more than I imagined when I saw the preview. It was well worth buying. Thanks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish movie, not ready for the BIG screen July 22, 2013
By D. Biss
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for a friend. I already had a copy. Entertaining but not professionally directed. Interesting story line. I enjoyed it more because we live here at the lake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's Bill Murray When You Need him? August 25, 2012
Format:DVD
Like "Ground Hog Day" this well shot film replays a familiar theme. Recently, I just watched, "Reel Love" with LeAnn Rimes and Burt Reynolds. Rimes plays a stressed lawyer from the big city that rushes back to her beautiful, country hometown because father is ill.

Here successful city attorney(well done by Scottie Thomson) comes home after father dies to deal with estranged, bitter mother, Jane Seymour, needy sister and old memories and old loves. The father's spirit, Jeff Fahey, looking like Red Green, helps his put upon daughter find herself and peace with her family.

The scenery is gorgeous filmed completely in Virginia. The actors are good. I love Jane Seymour, here, edgy and confrontational, spewing out hurt with her English accent buried away in Virginny. And Casper Van Dien with a smallish but important part as the daughter's handsome, but does he really love her?, big city boyfriend.

Yes, one knows good will come out of this, and even though I've seen it all before, it's still fun to redo it. Some comedy, a bit of a mystery, romance(must have romance!) and lots of emotional upheaval. The alarm clock's going off again, time to watch, again and again...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK film Not in line with the Bible
The picture has a good cast and the story portrays communication with the dead which is not in line with christina teaching in the Bible used in Protestant and Catholic churches.
