Director Jonathan Kaplan's response to the movie's completed script written by screenwriter Barbara Benedek was immediate. He said: "I thought it was perceptive, subtle and honest. What's uplifting is that it demonstrates how people of differing ages and experiences can find a common bond and ultimately bring out the best in each other". See more »
This film is worth watching for Masterson's performance alone. This drama tells the story of a couple in their late thirties/very early forties who decide to adopt a child after unsuccessful attempts of having their own. The portrayal of the adoption process and its typically attendant series of frustrations appear quite realistic. Unfortunately, another reviewer for IMDb has already given the ending away. However, when Mary Stuart Masterson's character enters the couple's life, it is very touching, and you almost wish the couple would adopt her as well as her baby (I did, anyway). Watching Masterson's character walking around the baby room that the couple decorated is worth watching the entire film, as is the ending. Kevin Dillon delivers a very nice performance, as do, as always, Glenn Close and James Woods. Bring Kleenex.
