A fake newspaper headline is dated Sunday, April 28, 1961 on a weekly paper that, according to the masthead, is published each Friday. April 28, 1961 was indeed a Friday, but the actual date published on the masthead says "Sunday." See more »
I loved it. It gives you everything you want in an adventure film, plus good surprises. The main character is agonizingly true to life in behavior and thinking. The other characters are also so realistic that, for the first half of the film, it is tantalizingly hard to tell who is the villain. Minor characters add poignant touches. There are shades of "Blair Witch" in the camera work, which lends to the suspense and realism, and there are also beautiful scenic shots of nature. Since this movie won "Best Family Film" at the Bentonville Film Festival, you can confidently sit down in front of it with the kids. Yet the movie is scary and unpredictable. The exciting conclusion transcends the ordinary. Three cheers, five stars!
