An excellently written, directed and acted film!
24 August 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I think the title of this piece says it all. It is a wonderful piece of film which never fails to make me reach for a tissue. I think it could well be one of Keifer Sutherland's better performances. A definate one to watch!!
