FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P64044~Campbell Scott~campbellscott]] directed this offbeat comedy drama about a free-thinking family who find themselves confronted by the more regimented outside world. Bo Groden ([[Performer~P352542~Valentina d'Angelis~valentinadangelis]]) is an 11-year-old girl growing up as part of a decidedly eccentric family in a small town in New Mexico. Bo's father, Charley ([[Performer~P21648~Sam Elliott~samelliott]]), has fallen into a deep depression for reasons no one can understand, while her mother, Arlene ([[Performer~P1026~Joan Allen~joanallen]]), holds the household together, raising most of their food in her vegetable garden, which she prefers to tend in the nude. Bo, meanwhile, satisfies her sweet tooth by writing candy companies claiming to have had problems with their products, which usually results in a box of fresh goodies. While the Grodens get by through living within simple means, one day an Internal Revenue Agent appears at their door, wanting to know why the family hasn't paid income tax for several years -- and not believing there has been no appreciable income for so many years. Off the Map was screened in competition at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
