looking for words to a poem recited in this movie
17 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a sweet little movie. They assembled a good cast, and I'm sure those veteran character actors must have had a great time working with one another, and the story, both.

The film included a short poem that one of the characters read after one of their group passed away when they were on the run. I think Harold Gould's character recited it and they were in the mountains on a train at the time? Anyway, my mother commented at the time that she really liked that poem and would love to have it read at her own funeral one day. If anyone ever manages to get a copy of this movie, could they please post the words to that poem? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
