Storyline

Lovely performances in an offbeat but touching story
20 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It surprises me that so many people have such negative reactions to this movie. It isn't the usual Lifetime story with dramatic betrayals and heartbreak. It is not a documentary about mental illness. But it is a sweet almost-fantasy about love and loss and families and the the difficulty of balancing being supportive and being an enabler. Rita Wilson has dignity and grace as the delusional mother of three children, one of whom happens not to exist except in her imagination. It is not too far removed from what families do all the time on a smaller scale. Jimmy Stewart saw a big rabbit-ish pooka, for goodness' sakes.
