Already seen this film... marvelous depiction of oilfield
Life. Beautiful photography, characters believable, and
with a story that continues to be played out today.

I was able to see this at the premiere in Dallas - it is an incredibly moving period film and the sets and costumes were stunning. Being raised in Texas and around oil men, I can also speak to the authenticity of the plot and characters (something a lot of films get wrong), and it was spot-on. Mad props to the cast as well - authentic accents and moving performances. In the screening I attended, there were audible gasps from the audience and a lot of teary-eyes after - and I agree.

Saw this movie at the Fort Worth Film Festival because a lot of it was shot in my old hometown. Loved the book, just hoped the movie wouldn't be an embarrassment. WHAT A SHOCK! It is awesome!!! So true to the book. While there is some language, it's not gratuitous. In fact, not as bad as what you'd really hear in the oilfield. No gratuitous nudity or sex, just tasteful ways of implying some things that happened. A great story of a good but victimized man overcoming all odds but then letting his bad angels back in. Does he rise from the ashes? You need to see this movie. It is A #1 GREAT!!! Actor Lane Garrison nails the lead role on the money. So good I forgot I was watching a movie. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give TIO a 10.

We saw this film both at the Dallas International Film Festival and the Fort Worth Film Festival and we will definitely see it again. Nothing screams Texas fortitude like the story of a man who risks it all chasing that black gold. It is a great love story too.

Was able to see this at the Dallas International Film Festival and WOW! This film takes you on a journey with the main character, Jim McNeely, as he works his way from bottom to top. You will feel all the feels!
