Dove Review

This movie was a great family story. The scenery is beautiful and the viewer gets to see quite a few wild animals throughout this DVD as it is set in the Rocky Mountains. Skip and Pat, the parents, decide to leave the big city and move to a remote area in the mountains with their daughter and son to try to give them a better life. Part of their decision comes because Jenny, their daughter, has a lung condition and they feel that getting her in to the clean air of the mountains will make her life easier. The family works hard together to build a cabin and live off of the land by planting a garden and hunting for meat. Some of the animals that they come across are tame and become part of their lives. At other times, the family goes through some tense moments when they are attacked by some of the wild animals that they encounter. This movie has some humor and a little bit of suspense. All in all, it is a great family movie and we award this DVD our Dove approval for everyone in the family.
