The small working-class town of Angels Crest is a tight-knit community resting quietly in one of the vast and stunningly beautiful valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Ethan (Thomas Dekker), one of the town’s residents, is a young father but not much more than a kid himself. He has no choice but to look after his three-year-old son Nate, since Nate’s mother, Cindy (Lynn Collins), is an alcoholic. Then one snowy day, Ethan’s good intentions are thwarted by a moment of thoughtlessness, resulting in tragedy. A local prosecutor (Jeremy Piven) haunted by his past pursues Ethan, and the ensuing confusion and casting of blame starts tearing the town apart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Despite several solid performances, the characters are too hazily sketched and too loosely linked to form a meaningful chain.
Rotten: While there is a great deal of weeping and wailing going on in the town of Angels Crest, little of it is connected to a comprehensible or cohesive plot.
Rotten: Catherine Trieschmann's script, based on the novel by Leslie Schwartz, barely scratches the potentially loaded surfaces it serves up.
Rotten: Drama about the small-town aftermath of a child's accidental death can't match its sincerity with dramatic heft.
The 5 Stages of Grief
This movie puts you through the grieving process. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. Unfortunately, it is acceptance that starts the process all over again.
Powerful movie, layered and profound. The kind of stuff Oscar nominations are made of….
