Product Description

The journey of a lifetime for young Lily Strickland begins not out of her love for adventure but out of heartache. Longing for the father she lost to the ocean and having no way to say goodbye, Lily strikes out on her own beginning a journey of the spirit and of the heart.

Her mother has found a new man to share her life with and Lily is the bearer of unpleasant secrets in his life which only she knows. Leaving behind a safe, loving environment with her grandparents (Diane Ladd and Lee Majors) and loving mother (Amy Redford), she faces not only her fears but the obstacles the wilderness presents.

With her faith and belief that her father will guide her, she sets out with her trusty dog. With the help of a friendly tugboat captain (Bernie Casey), she follows her dream to find the ocean and to finally set her heart at peace.

Inspired by a true story.

Review

"When I Find the Ocean is a wonderful family film. The viewers will find themselves wrapped up in the story...rooting for the good guys. We award this family friendly film five Doves. --The Dove Foundation

If you are looking for a drama with great family values that the entire family can enjoy together then this is the movie. When I find the Ocean is a touching, sad and heart-warming tale of a young girl s quest to find peace and one I highly recommend. The cast if terrific, this is a film that not only relies on a great story to carry it but it also relies heavily on its cast as they are the main focus. The scenery is breath-taking and the musical score is a triumph, it sends chills through you. --VideoViews.org

This movie boasts that it is a "family" movie and is rated PG. So far, so good. The cast is quite good--Diane Ladd, Lee Majors and Graham Greene. Greene is an excellent actor and has received an Oscar nomination in the past. Well, there won't be any bids for the Oscar on this one.

Despite calling itself a family movie, you get to watch a little girl who cannot come to grips with her father's death, child beating (welts and cuts are all over her back making you wonder how she can walk without crying), a child who has been told that her stepfather to be is going to kill her dog, a child running away and getting caught by the type of animal traps that will snap your leg off, two mountain men left over from Deliverance who slobber over the fact they caught a pretty girl in their trap, a panther stalking the child, the Ku Klux Klan in action and a Black mother and child burning to death in their home.

The camera work is clumsy and toward the end of the film it becomes atrocious. This is the first film I have ever seen where different scenes are not blended together. When the scene stops, the screen goes black until the next scene appears. At first, our family thought the TV had broken. Then we were sorry it hadn't.

I note that the film festivals where the film has won awards are for amateur film makers. So, maybe I'm being too hard. Still I can't help but wonder how really good actors got caught in it. They have a terrible time trying to portray their parts due to the script which is mostly in single sentences. None of the parts are rounded out so all of the acting stays on the surface. The movie attempts to show why prejudice against the Blacks is wrong and then casts Graham Greene as a stereotype Indian in a kind of 'Tonto' role which is confusing.

An award-winning saga inspired by a true story, When I Find the Ocean is a movie about a young girl coming to terms with the loss of her father. The ocean claimed the life of Lily Strickland's father; lacking a way to say goodbye, she leaves her grandparents and mother to confront her own fears amid the challenges of the wilderness. A deeply emotional, family-friendly movie unfolds, shot against breathtaking seacoast, river, and forest natural scenery. Highly recommended. PG, 104 min., closed captioned (but not subtitled).

The premise of this movie starts out strong enough, but quickly falls to too many branching plot points and clunky dialogue. The panther scene had no drama, because it was clear the actors and the panther were never together on set given the cutaway shots. The scene with the bumbling rednecks was also totally unnecessary, since this was supposed to be drama. It was incredibly jarring whenever these two were on screen. Given some good editing, I could see this film going up at least a star.
Sadly, the director's daughter is the lead, which is a shame given her sub-standard acting chops in contrast to the talents of the other cast members like Lee Majors and Diane Ladd. I've seen plenty of better child actors. It's apparent the director was also loathe to cut any scene with her daughter in it, making this movie almost an hour too long. If you want to see a family movie about a runaway child traveling down the river, go watch a movie about something written by Samuel Clemens

Such a delightful story because it is Small Town, USA. The store (Cypress Inn, TN) setting is actually less than 10 miles from my current home (Zip City, AL) and less than 5 miles from where I grew up (Cloverdale, AL). The store operated as Darby's Store during my entire childhood. Because the store layout is similar to the Wild West Saloons, it became my father's favorite building (and mine). My husband is an artist (watercolor) and presented my father with a painting of this store for Christmas in 2000. My father will be gone 10 years on October 21, and Mother returned the painting to us a couple of years after his death. The filmmaker, Tonya S. Holly, also grew up in Cypress Inn. Her mother had a small boutique next to their home, where she sold shoes, accessories and clothing. It was obvious during our visits that Tonya had dreams and aspirations far beyond her geographical location! She now is producing a Bonnie and Clyde movie, but needs funding to complete! I have purchased several copies of, 'When I Find The Ocean,' and plan to purchase many more; along with Bonnie and Clyde.

I first saw this movie when I borrowed it from the video store. It was a very good movie!!! It teaches us that child abuse, animal cruelty and racism is wrong and should never be tolerated. I like Lily because she knows what is about to happen and she is looking for peace. I HATE the stepfather!!! just seeing him abuse Lily made me feel like fighting him. That guy is such a bastard!!! I was glad the police arrested him in the movie because he deserved to go to jail. Overall, the movie was good and had a great message to it. I would definately allow my friends to see it. it is a really good movie.
