Off the Map

Borrowed this from my grandmother on a whim.

"Bo (Valentina de Angelis) is eleven years old and lives in a remote desert area of New Mexico with her mother (Joan Allen(, a free spirit who tends to the garden in teh nude, and her father (Sam Elliot), who is losing a battle with his inner demons.

One day they receieve a visit from an IRS agent (Jim True-Frost) who is there to audit the family even though they make a very modest income. Realizing the simple yet profound way that Bo and her family are living, the IRS agent abandons his work to live with the family and surrender to the mystique of the desert landscape. Eventually he becomes the catalyst for major changes and discoveries by every member of the family. OFF THE MAP is a story of self-discovery that reveals unexpected moments of grace and the unpredictable enduring nature of love."

I LOVED this movie. Have watched it 3 times now, and am really really enjoying it's many intricacies. It's a slightly odd feel-good movie that leaves you sort of just... feelin good.

If you're not going to snort.... why bother laughing?

It does sound like a good movie.  I'll check it out too.  Maybe Netflix has it.
