Although the acting is good (especially from the little girl at the centre of the story) it also leaves a little bit to be desired.
It's one of those films where you're shown the ending right at the beginning, and then it goes back to the beginning to tell the story.
That sort of thing works sometimes but I think I would have liked to have been surprised instead of knowing what was coming.
That said it was very watchable and I did enjoy most of it...only other thing I wasn't too happy about was Cybil Shepherd. She was great in Moonlighting but in this movie she didn't really bring anything to the table. However, give it a go and see what you think. Maybe it's just me....
