A heart-warming tale for all ages to enjoy
30 April 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Abilene is a heart-warming tale. It was refreshing to see this type and quality of a movie in this day and age. It proves that violence, sex, and foul language are not essential elements for an enjoyable show.

All of the actors and actress' did a fine job of portraying realistic people in small town America. This is an age group that needs to be addressed more often. Everybody knows about the "graying of America," however a large majority of the films are geared towards teenagers. Camp and crew did a good job of making this enjoyable for not only seniors, but all ages.

The storyline is humorous, sad, and sweet. The camera captures the beautiful vast landscape of Texas. The costumes were great, the music was an asset.

I hope that all will be able to sit back and watch this good ol'fashioned film, soon.
