Not usually my cup of tea
8 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Normally I am wary of feel-good, sentimental films which are sometimes described as "heart-warming" and usually involve children and/or animals but this one came up trumps. It was on at 2a.m., which is a fair indication of the esteem in which it was held by the television station. Frankly it was excellent, it skilfully portrayed the characters and side-stepped what I usually refer to as "mush". The acting of all concerned was excellent (has Anne Bancroft ever turned in a bad performance?) and I enjoyed it thoroughly. While I will continue to avoid this type of scenario this was indeed one out of the box. The children certainly gave Miss Bancroft a run for her money in the acting department but age and experience won out in the end.
