I read some place the cast of this film looks bet­ter on the poster than in the movie and that pretty much sums up ev­ery­thing about this pro­duc­tion – it’s all sur­face. It’s a su­per­fi­cial and unin­spired melo­drama which cen­tres on the res­i­dents of a small US town that has fallen on tough times. A big-time com­pany sweeps in with a con­tro­ver­sial plan to turn around the town’s for­tunes. The direc­tion and lazy script­ing show no signs of sub­tlety – nei­ther do a cou­ple of the per­form­ers – and the var­i­ous lit­tle sub­plots don’t re­ally serve the cen­tral drama and themes.
