Have you ever been in Sedona?
Sedona’s main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
We love the Sedona Movie because it is a charming, inspirational and mystical adventure about finding miracles.
This ‘feel-good’ tale is about the successful advertising executive Tammy (Frances Fisher). As she drives from Portland to Phoenix to land the biggest client of her career. A wrong turn gets her lost and takes her into Sedona by mistake, where a local tour plane runs her off the highway right in the middle of town during an emergency crash landing. She’s forced to wait in Sedona while her damaged car is repaired.
Across town, uptight lawyer Scott (Seth Peterson), vacationing with his partner Eddie and their two young sons, embarks on a family day hike out in the forest among the majestic red rocks. Eddie (Matthew J. Williamson) has brought workaholic Scott to Sedona for some rest and relaxation. Because Scott can’t seem to go more than a few minutes without tending to business on his cell phone, annoyed Eddie makes him leave the phone behind as the four of them head out onto the trails.
Waiting for her car to be fixed at an auto shop, Tammy bonds with young free spirit and pregnant receptionist Alana (Kylee Cochran), butts heads with cantankerous mechanic Les (Barry Corbin), and meets psychic pedicurist Deb Lovejoy (Beth Grant), who is convinced that Tammy, the ultimate skeptic, is stuck in Sedona for a reason.
Having stopped for snacks, Scott and Eddie enjoy some quiet time and deep conversation while their kids, 7-year-old Denny (Trevor Stovall) and 12-year-old Jeremy (Rand Schwenke), explore their surroundings. When Jeremy returns by himself, they all discover that Denny is missing. Searching the surrounding area with no sign of the little boy, they become increasingly frantic. When a local hiker named Chuck appears from the trail, they enlist his help in the search. Not knowing which way Denny could have gone, Chuck suggests Eddie and Jeremy head back to their car at the trail head in case he shows up there. Meanwhile, Chuck hikes the opposite direction, deeper into the forest along with Scott, who unknowingly in that moment begins a profound spiritual journey that forces him to examine his priorities and determine what’s truly important in life.
An increasingly uncomfortable Tammy decides to wait no longer for her car and attempts to escape by renting another car. But as she’s just about to leave Sedona behind, she’s forced to return to retrieve something she forgot, and then loses the rental keys, once again leaving her trapped. This leads to her encountering more quirky locals, including coffee shop owner Pierce (Christopher Atkins), who she’s intensely attracted to, and Claire “da loon” (Lin Shaye), an eccentric homeless woman eternally stuck in her childhood. A string of bizarre coincidences spirals Tammy out of control, leaving her haunted by her past and forcing her to face her demons head on. Letting her guard down, she confronts the implausible possibility that she has been brought to Sedona for a greater purpose. Desperate for answers, she returns to Deb Lovejoy, and asks, “Why am I here”?
