Saw "Off the Map" last night...

Here's a link to the trailer:


Directed by Campbell Scott, starring Joan Allen and Sam Elliott. It's about a family who practically lives off the land in New Mexico, no phone, electricity, plumbing etc.... and one day find out they are being audited. The visit from the IRS agent turns into a journey of self discovery for him, as well as the entire family. I really enjoyed this movie, a well written drama with some funny elements and good characters. Like the setting in the movie, it has a very laid back feel to it, no tense build ups or devastating climax, but good from beginning to end. I'd give it a strong 3.5 out of 5.

I also enjoyed this film, it certainly glorified a simplier life - made me want to run out and live in New Mexico and get back to my art work which I haven't done in years.
