Movie Review – Peace River

Read Time:1 Minute, 31 Second


Peace River caught me off guard. I knew nothing about the movie going in. Lucky for me, prior to the showing there were interviews with the writer/actor, Benjamin M. Jones. He truly wrote this from his heart. I felt it throughout the entire film. The story was endearing, heartbreaking, and full of real-life situations and problems.

The cast is made up of people involved in his vision. I don’t believe they are professional actors. That being said, the acting wasn’t great. The filming wasn’t great but again, the story was there.

Grade: C+

About The Peetimes: Heads up: The showing I went to surprised me. Normally they show about 15 minutes of trailers. This movie had none; it started right away. I’m not sure if this is a theater glitch or is specific to this movie. Be on time — you don’t have the extra 15-minute leeway we’re all guilty of using sometimes.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Peace River. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
