Customer Review

on February 21, 2010
Plot consists of an unrealistic string of failures and poverty. Such as, in order: Abusive husband to his wife and his son with stereotypic fight of son to save mother. Son and mother flee. Mother dies. Son is abusive, at times, to his brother who has cancer. Brother loses contact with his girlfriend. Both brothers go searching for missing dad in car that breaks down. They meet Mariah the waitress (of course) who is abused by her boss and her husband. Abused Mariah teams up with abused brothers and they end up being chased by Mariah's abusive husband who happens to be a cop. Abusive cop while in pursuit encounters abusive couple in bathroom scene. Father is found dead. Brother also dies. Ashes, of course, are spread on mountain.

Very poorly produced, edited, acted and written. Put together at the last moment with limited funds and last minute signee actors. So cheap the hospital scene looks like a motel room with a rented oxygen bottle for ambience. Movie has a staged, rehearsed feel to it such as the obligatory depression era jumping boxcars to get to Tennessee and the stilted and excruciating long scenes of poorly lit rooms, car journeys and scenic hills.

Mariah's role in movie is physical appeal, 3 minutes of singing and her vast movie acting education telling the directors how she should act.

Movie was suppose to be heartbreakin' honest in order to make the audience weep and see life as beautiful. Instead it was heartbreakin' contrived in all respects.
