Slice of Life
- Wildlife review by JP
The acting makes this film.... a simple story of a family that has moved to Montana after many other moves. The mother seems a good one at the start, but life events change her life and perspective. It's really the son's story and how he views the family's life and transitions. One moral of the story - don't marry too young!

Well acted story
- Wildlife review by TE
Excellent acting by everyone concerned, with special credit to the young Ed Oxenbould.
The film would benefit from a little more back-story to help explain why the mother goes so completely crazy when the father heads off to the burning woods.
Their son is the camera through which we see events unfold, and there is a poignant punch in the final scene in the photographer's studio.
