      I read the book this movie was based on years ago and stumbled on the DVD. The DVD was very true to the book and is a gripping true tale. Seeing these people's struggle and will to survive fit with my images from the book. If you are looking for a action thriller without much violence or bloodshed, this film is for you.

      With many laughs and a serious story the acting seems a little far fetched but gets better as the plot proceeds. At the end you feel for the characters and are rooting for the young boy. Give it a shot, it is worth seeing/owning.

      Saorsa Ronan is half the reason this movie is so great. She is the actress to watch rise right now. This is one of the best stories of survival I have seen in a long time.

      Good story and beautiful landscapes. If you put your mind to it anything is possible. They endured a lot and didn't give up even to the end.
