Acting as it was meant to be
22 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

Very touching warm film about two elderly men supporting each other both mentally and physically in their later years. One of the better films I have ever seen produced by HBO. Vincent Gardenia and Hume Cronyn are absolutely brilliant. Both actors won and deserved Emmy's for their performances. If you wanted to become an actor, watch this film and learn from two pros.
