Thomas McCarthy and Candice Bergen did an outstanding job in this movie. I watched the last 1 hour of it. Then later found out that my cable provider would not be showing it again any time soon. I was so touched by this movie. I have never experienced such joy. I know it is just a movie but it hit my heart. The plot was excellent. I cannot seem to find the video or a copy of a DVD. I ordered the book the morning I saw this movie. Is there another movie similar to this one? If so let me know. It is nice to see a great movie once in a while with no violence or cursing involved. I could not get this movie out of my head all day long. It's like how romantic to actually see such a great movie. Thumbs up on this great movie.
