Plot Summary
A decidedly unconventional family, the Grodins lead a secluded, self-sufficient existence in rural New Mexico. Bo (Valentina de Angelis) is a restless young girl. Her father, Charley (Sam Elliott), is mired in depression, and her mother, Arlene (Joan Allen), provides for the family by tending to their garden.

    Its story meanders and doesn't build, and the pace is deadly. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The movie's sense of place is hypnotic, but there's more to it than gorgeous images -- Campbell Scott's astute direction; Joan Allen's beautifully laconic performance; a sense of lively, if occasionally pretentious, inquiry into the wellsprings of art. show more

    Write your review here...Well we have the pretty white boy, the angry-but sort of pretty- black boy, the tough, but pretty white woman, and the supporting group from central casting doing 'noble' 'edgy' 'predicticable' things in the clean, sterile jungles of Acapulco near by Senor Frog's bar.....really? People got paid to make this? How do I get on this gravy train of stupidit?
