I disagree with the above comments. The guy must have seen a different movie than the audiences I've seen the film with. I had the pleasure of seeing the film in Hawaii and at the LA Independent film festival and the audiences loved the film. The performances were charming and the performances were up to the level of any of the best Rockwell films. It is a must see... a film with charm and heart.
