Steven R. McQueen,
Lovely scenery. The wilderness lake and cloud-shrouded mountaintops are extremely familiar to me as a western Canadian.
The plot is a bit garbled, what with the marital tension and the teenaged sister with the smarmy boyfriend who has ties to her father's company, which is under threat of a hostile takeover, and boyfriend's even more sinister boss who may or may not have orchestrated more than a financial slapdown. Plus the nice old family friend who may be too good to be true.
Is it primarily a financial movie, a wilderness survival story, a marital post-mortem, a cautionary tale for teenage girls? A tourist advertisement for the area where it was filmed?
The acting - anybody's acting - doesn't quite rise to the level of entirely inhabiting the character. Even the wolves aren't acting like real wolves. Sigh.
