A heart-warming story the whole family can enjoy.
29 June 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming true story about Olive Frederickson. I was very impressed with the strength and independence of the main character, Olive, as shown in Ellen Burstyn's portrayal of her. Equally impressive is Gordon Pinsent's ability to capture the simplicity and good nature of John Frederickson. This is truly a story the entire family can enjoy.
