Solid movie. The disaffected outcast indie movie is one of the most mannered around, but this take finds air to breath. The tone is neutral enough to develop Terri as a gentle, good, but young character and all of this without the safety of a winking, quirky irony.

Landscape is a huge issue here: no film permit, no budget, have to hide while filming and so you wind up with “quirky boy” looking like a sharecropper hiking to DeGrassi. How do you recover from that? It does. So bravo.

The best scene of the movie comes early: Terri watching an eagle eat the mice his uncle had him catch in the attic.
