Good film about family and relocation...
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this was a story about the witness protection program, it at least centers on the family, their reactions to moving to Northern California wine country, and how they adjust. Not the usual crime and violence drama, which is a good thing.

Eli Wallach and Richard Crenna (who is always excellent) are interesting in this story, and there are some beautiful scenes of wine country which are rarely filmed (Except in the recent film "Sideways").

Overall, the performances are very good, Diane Baker is also believable, and this is a good little suspense film, if you can find it on VHS or DVD. Recommended.
