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.

This movie surpassed my expectations for it! Maudlin and stirring with deep regret and a heartfelt sadness that is not easily expressed. Piven is a very good actor for a young talent. Having sons, sons who drifted away through traumatic separations make it difficult to watch. Losing someone is a living death though they are alive; still it is like a death when they are out of a person's life. Divorce has made a Nation full of dislocated parents and children. Asking why a thousand times a day doesn't make it any better or different!

Angels Crest is about a father who, through unintentional negligence causes the death of his three-year-old son. First of all, the movie's backdrop is a wonderland of mountains and snow. That's the best part, because the movie is lacking in so many other respects. The DA, who wants to prosecute the father for the death of the son and convict him of just about total murder of an accident, needed backstory. Supposedly, the DA's persistence has something to do with young children in his past, yet the viewer does not know anything about him. The main character, the father of the child, portrayed by Thomas Dekker, gives a gut wrenching performance of a devastated father whose world was his son. This actor is real and convincing in a grief that he can't deal with. The rest of the cast in this movie fall short in supporting him. This actor carries the entire movie. Other than fine acting, the rest of the movie is disorganized and falls flat. It drags to an ending that's not on the mark or expected. I understand the movie was pivoted from a book, but I would not waste my time reading it.
