Nick, a 17-year-old in search of his father, gains employment with a logging company in a beautiful and mysterious virgin forest known as the Limberlost. Through his relationships with new associates and his adventures in this new and strange environment, Nick learns the value of personal honesty and integrity and discovers what defines true friendship. He finds himself torn between his affection for Angelica, who believes with her Aunt Olivia that the forest should be preserved, and loyalty to his boss, the owner of the lumber company. In the end, this city boy must choose between his own safety and the lives of those he has come to love. Written by City Boy

As multi-faceted as a piece of parchment
20 September 2000 | by becca_395See all my reviews

I had been eagerly awaiting seeing this film, due to my love of Gene Stratton-Porter's novels, but was disappointed due to its flat, dull portrayals. While the film had a lovely forest backdrop, and several well-crafted scenes, generally the characters were as multi-faceted as a piece of parchment. A shame, especially as contrasted to the opulence of Ms. Porter's original writing.

To make myself clear: it was not a bad movie - in fact, a rather good piece of family entertainment complete with a budding romance and a moral - just a bit milquetoast.
