"heartwarmer" with good acting and relentless compassion
12 January 2001 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

A sweet movie with enough grit to make it easy to swallow; even one of the goats is named "Sugar". Similar in tone and plot to "Down in the Delta". The actors inhabit their characters without self-consciousness. I'm a sucker for movies like this, and I thought the goats were delightful.
