Sedona the movie ( Review)
Review of the film Sedona
I just got back from seeing the new independent film called Sedona at the Hollywood Film Festival. It's a new charming, inspirational, quirky, feelgood, magical and mystical adventure about finding miracles. Tammy and Seth are both A Type Career professionals who's personal lives take a back seat to work. They are both brought to Sedona from fate to learn about themselves and life. Tammy and Seth are two sides of the same coin of being so focused and traditional success that they are not successful in other facets of their lives. It's a great film that was written by someone who really likes people and figuring out how they work!
Keep an eye out to see this film at your indepedent theatre it's worth it!
Two inspiring stories of self-discovery intertwine over a day in mystical Sedona. One follows successful advertising executive Tammy (Frances Fisher) on her birthday as she drives from Portland to Phoenix to land the biggest client of her career. A wrong turn gets her lost and takes her into Sedona by mistake, where a local tour plane runs her off the highway right in the middle of town during an emergency crash landing. She’s forced to wait in Sedona while her damaged car is repaired.
Across town, uptight lawyer Scott (Seth Peterson), vacationing with his partner Eddie (Matthew J. Williamson) and their two young sons Denny (Trevor Sterling Stovall), Jeremy (Rand Schwenke), embarks on a family day hike out in the forest among the majestic red rocks. Eddie has brought workaholic Scott to Sedona for some rest and relaxation. They wind up in an unexpected frightening adventure out on the hiking trails when their 7-year-old Denny gets lost. The ensuing frantic search for the little boy sends Scott into a profound life-changing journey that forces him to examine his priorities and determine what’s truly important in life.
Meanwhile, Tammy unwittingly begins a spiritual transformation of her own as she encounters an array of quirky locals, each touching her in different meaningful ways. A string of bizarre coincidences spirals her out of control, leaving her haunted by her past and forcing her to face her demons head on. Letting her guard down, she confronts the implausible possibility that she has been brought to Sedona for a greater purpose.
