LEGEND OF TILLAMOOK
All the kids were glued to the screen. After the screening, they talked about how much they enjoyed it, would recommend it to their friends. "I really liked it because they looked for buried treasure. I like the legend" "My friends would like the story with the elk and the slave."
Enjoyable. Seeking a solution to her family's financial problems, a young woman to follow a local legend and hunt for a hidden treasure. She becomes enmeshed in local lore and Native American tradition as her search takes her out of her own comfort zone, into another realm. Well produced. Good performances by entire cast, particularly by Suzanne Doyon who plays Julie. Compelling storyline, well delivered. Some scenes of drinking, smoking, and running away but they are superseded by a good story and an excellent production.
Julie, a lonely fourteen-year-old, and her family move to Manzanita, Oregon from Los Angeles after her writer father loses his job. Her family has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Her parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling. Julie's Grandfather and his friend, Standing Elk, seem to be the only ones with time for Julie. They tell Julie the legend of the Tillamook Treasure - a wealth of gold brought by 16th century Spanish sailors who landed on the beach near Manzanita. The legend fascinates Julie and who decides to search for the buried gold and in the process discovers more than she's bargained for. While searching for the treasure, Julie realizes the real treasure she already possesses in her family.
