Very pleasant movie, 16 May 1999
Author: Arnie Mellor from Launceston, Tasmania, Australia

I watched this by chance on a cold winter's afternoon.It turned out to be a treasure beautifully filmed and acted.One of those old fashioned movies with no sex or violence etc.The story was very predictable..but who cares?. I predict a bright future for Emily Hamilton who played Lucy.I gave it 9/10.
