A peer of the featured players I loved this story.
28 June 1999 | by (St. Helena, California) – See all my reviews

This is redundant, but the picture industry is overlooking the huge audience of nice people with gray hair. We are sentimental, nostalgic, love to shed a tear at a happy ending. We avoid obscenities, public nudity, abuse or addiction of any kind. Abilene is the essence of what our generation enjoys. I applaud those who assembled this beautiful, sensitive and modest motion picture.
