A Classic Drama
24 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wonderful performances by an all-star cast led by Mark Harmon and Jodie Foster make "Stealing Home" a classic drama. John Shea is also remarkable and shows what he can do with a good part. Making the film even more enjoyable is the great score by David Foster which captures perfectly the mood of the film and for once, songs actually blend in and help set the mood and time of the piece.

A must-see.
