Found this earlier today..
Looks pretty cool. One of the girls, Kathryn Newton, was in the new 'Paranormal Activity 4' that was released towards the end of October.
I know the director was born in the Netherlands, but I believe the movie was filmed on location in Maine where the story takes place.Abbie Down East” is a historical piece, and is based on the true story of a young girl who saves her ailing mother and younger sisters during the great storm of 1856.
Abbie is a fourteen-year-old girl, growing up with her mother, father and two young sisters in the middle of the 19th century. Abbie’s family runs the lighthouse in Maine, and Abbie's father leaves Abbie in charge when he must go to town to retrieve supplies. During her father’s absence, the storm hits, and Abbie is faced with the responsibility of caring for, feeding, and ultimately, with the survival of her mother and siblings.
I found the entire movie here:
