Talking "Christmas in the Clouds" - Movie Release, 18 Nov. 2005

Christmas in the Clouds
Rated PG - Comedy
Director: Kate Montgomery
Actors: Tim Vahle, Sam Vlahos, MariAna Tosca, Sheila Tousey, Graham Greene, Rita Coolidge, Shirley Cheechoo, Wes Studi, and M. Emmet Walsh.
Opens on: 18 November 2005

Review by Rebecca Flint, All Movie Guide:

Ray (Tim Vahle) has just returned from college to run a Native-American ski lodge. A laid-back place where employees' children play in the lobby and the handyman has a habit of macking on guests, the lodge isn't exactly four-star travel guide material. So when Ray learns that a travel guide representative is coming to make an inspection, he makes an executive decision to make the lodge a professional place of business. In addition to keeping his father, who happens to be the hotel's former manager, out of his way, he also has to contend with his somewhat eccentric staff, which includes an emotional vegetarian chef (Graham Greene) who takes a certain pleasure in informing his diners of the names he has given the animals they're eating. Despite Ray's exhaustive preparations, something, of course, goes wrong: something that, in this case, turns out to be a case of mistaken identity: when Tina, a comely Mohawk woman, shows up at the lodge, Ray assumes her to be the representative, and sets about giving her the royal treatment while the actual representative (M. Emmet Walsh) is ignored and must contend with a hefty dose of hotel mismanagement.

"Christmas in the Clouds" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2001, and was an audience favorite at the 2002 Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema.

I had to check into this cuz it's too bad the movie came out in 2001 and is just now being released in LIMITED theaters next month.

Here's a good story about it:http://www.indiancountry.com/content.cfm?id=1028639537

And I highly recommend going to the website http://christmasintheclouds.com
and watching the video clips. Graham Greene is so funny!! Oh yeah, and turn off the sound for "NDN cars" at the homepage, so you can hear the clips.

I'm looking forward to sitting back, relaxing and really enjoying this movie, without feeling as though I had to scrutinize it for historical accuracy.

Did anyone see this movie, was it any good? Our elder and drumkeeper's son was part of the production team, and actor in this film.

I'll be looking for this one in Chicago. If Graham Greene is in it. It's gotta be a good one.
