Wooly Boys – Filtered
A sheep rancher’s visit to the big city triggers a mischevious adventure with his teenage computer-whiz grandson.
“Wooly Boys” is the story of two North Dakotan sheep ranchers (Stoney and Shuck) who have been friends for decades. When his daughter (Kate) fails to send her yearly birthday card, Stoney fears something has happened and hops a bus to Minneapolis. When he arrives, he finds his grandson, Charles, whom he hasn’t spoken to for seven years. Charles takes Stoney to the hospital where Kate is healthy and well and waiting to admit him because of his failing health. Shuck hears the news from the ranch and hightails it to Minneapolis, sneaks Stoney out of the hospital and together they take Charles back with them to the ranch where he gets to know his grandfather and learns some valuable lessons about life and love. At first I thought this was going to be a great film, but it turned out to be kind of corny.
