A really lovely film
3 April 2005 | by (EASTBOURNE, ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film I wasn't to keen on it but the more I saw it the more I liked it. For me it is a film that grows on you. A woman dying of cancer Holly with a young daughter Jenny and Kate the friend whom she wants to be her daughters guardian. Shelley Long and Lindsay Wagner work so well together in fact sometimes I wasn't sure whether they were acting or being their normal self. Jenny the little girl was so well played by Molly Orr and Shelley Long as she always does with children interacts with Jenny so well that it is a pleasure to see her with Jenny. The ending is the most poignant one I have ever seen. When the flesh is the weakest the spirit is the strongest. When Holly says to Kate Are you saying goodbye Barnes its time for the hanky. However the interaction with Kate and Jenny is shown so well when at the very end of the film they are driving away in the pick up and Jenny says Can I have a parrott and Kate says that would be nice. A real pleasure to watch this film.
