Beneath the Harvest Sky is a 2013 coming-of-age drama film that follows the journey of two high school seniors, Dominic and Casper, as they navigate their way through life in rural Maine. Dominic and Casper, played by Emory Cohen and Callan McAuliffe, have been best friends since childhood, and both share a passion for dirt biking. However, their lives take very different paths as they approach graduation. Dominic is eager to escape the small town he feels trapped in and pursue a life beyond his family's potato farm, while Casper, who comes from a broken home, is content to stay in the town and help his father with his family's marijuana business.

The film starts with the two boys planning their last harvest before Dominic leaves to go to Boston with his girlfriend, Emma, played by Sarah Sutherland. They plan to use the money made from the harvest to buy a new dirt bike and finally fulfill their dream of qualifying for a major race. However, their plans are soon derailed when the police raid Casper's father's marijuana farm, leaving the boys with few options but to turn to the drug trade to make money.

As the boys become more deeply involved in the drug trade, their friendship is put to the test. Dominic finds himself drawn into the gritty underbelly of the drug world, while Casper becomes increasingly disillusioned with it. Meanwhile, Emma finds herself drawn to the boys' dangerous lifestyle, leading to a love triangle that threatens to tear the three friends apart.

Beneath the Harvest Sky explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and the struggle to escape the constraints of a limited life. It paints a vivid picture of life in rural Maine while delivering an emotionally powerful story of young adults coming to terms with who they are and the choices they have made.

Cohen and McAuliffe give captivating performances, with Cohen particularly standing out as he navigates the complex emotions of a young man torn between his dreams and his loyalty to his friend. Bryant also delivers a solid performance in her role as Casper's estranged mother.

The film's beautiful cinematography captures the stark beauty of rural Maine, with sweeping shots of the countryside set against a haunting soundtrack that perfectly captures the film's melancholic tone.

Overall, Beneath the Harvest Sky is a powerful and thought-provoking film that will stay with viewers long after the credits roll. It is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates a well-crafted story that explores the challenges of growing up in a world that can be both beautiful and brutal.
