Earth to Echo

“‘Earth to Echo’ is an enjoyable surprise all around,” said Heartland Film Artistic Director Tim Irwin. “With strong, relatable characters, effective visual effects and emotional depth, it tells a story of friendship that’s full of adventure. ‘Earth to Echo’ is a modern update of the classic adventure films of the past 30 years, and a worthy recipient of the Truly Moving Picture Award.”

An inspiring science-fiction adventure, Earth to Echo captures all the mystery, excitement and wonder of an extraterrestrial occurrence in a small Nevada suburb. But at its heart, the movie is about friendship. Our three young heroes – Tuck, Munch and Alex – are a closely bonded trio of outcasts, whose time together is coming to an end. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project; forcing their families to move away. Only the promise of one last thrill together – a journey into the desert to search for the source of strange and mysterious messages that have appeared on their cell phones –can distract them from their impending move. “The movie is really about this group of kids and how they have to say goodbye to each other,” says director Dave Green. “There’s something bittersweet about the fact they’re spending their last night together. But is goodbye really goodbye? In our movie, it’s not. It’s a beginning.”
