terrific heartwarming film
29 January 2003 | by (new york city) – See all my reviews

It is precisely because of movies like this one that I ever more frequently seek out independent films. A remarkable accomplishment from this talented screenwriter. Many have been unduly harsh and critical of this film because it walks along a "well-trodden" hollywood path - the heartaches of families who deal with divorce. But to see only this is to miss the forest for the trees. "The Autumn Heart" tells the story of one family's outcome from divorce. But during the storytelling we are enriched with wonderful characters who quickly stir a multitude of different feelings within ourselves. We discover many layers to each of these characters (or at least we do if we realize we are in the forest). This should undoubtedly be credited to the terrific perfomances in this film. If you have not seen "The Autumn Heart" yet, go see it. If you have seen it, see it again (as I have) for it comes even more alive the second time. An amazing achievement from an independent film.
