Good Film
15 August 2003 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I was flipping through the channels one day, and found this film on TV. I was surprised at how good it actually was. Fred Astaire and Helen Hayes were great. He could still act (Too bad he couldn't dance). I believe it accurately shows what happens when people get older. Also it shows the effect it has on the family around them. I'd recommend it to anyone.
