The movie is based on the novel "Angels Crest" by Leslie Schwartz.
Here's a novel summary:

A father pays the price for a brief moment of distraction in this histrionic lost child novel set in the mountains of California. Ethan Denton finally has everything he ever wanted. He's just won full custody of his three-year-old son, Nate, and they're living together in a tiny isolated town near a stunning peak called Angels Crest. That's where the two head one chilly morning at the crack of dawn, as part of Ethan's quest to "indoctrinate his son with the divinity of the forest." But Nate falls asleep in the truck, and Ethan makes the fateful decision to leave him for a moment while he follows the trail of two handsome bucks. By the time Ethan gets back, Nate has walked away in his footie pajamas and disappeared into the forest. Before long, nearly everyone in town is engaged in Ethan's parental nightmare, including Ethan's alcoholic ex-wife, Cindy ("with her wear-and-tear body"), lesbian couple Rocksan and Jane, ex-con woodsman Glick, diner waitress Angie and tormented Jewish judge Jack Rosenthal. Writing from seven separate points of view, Schwartz (Jumping the Green) lingeringly explores the different ways parents desert their children, and the aftereffects of their abandonment. She manages to keep the plot pounding forward, but hammers home her maudlin message relentlessly.

nemoteen 23rd-Nov-2009 09:41 pm (UTC)
I feel the same. Just seeing that big grin and hair plugs makes me angry for no reason.

I wish it was just a little typo, but the A and O are just sooo far apart on the keyboard.

If you're from California or Florida... Calgary is fucking freezing at this time of year. Hell, Georgia is fucking freezing.

I dunno Western Canada has had pretty unseasonably warm weather this fall. I'm in Winnipeg and it's still above 10C (50F) most days & snowless.

that's exactly what i thought. i'm in edmonton, and it's only been -8 here (at night) and -3 during the day.
greatbriton 23rd-Nov-2009 09:54 pm (UTC)
I have no opinion on the matter.

I'll leave my computer now to go gather another Pepsi.
