A pleasant surprise. A heartwarming story.
21 April 2001 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Given that this film was not picked up by a distributer for release soon after its completion, I was pleasantly surprised at its overall quality. It is a simplistic story but holds your attention very well. The first half is very funny and then shifts into a heartwarming tug at your heartstrings. General comments that I heard upon leaving the theater were very positive. Striking aerial and land based farmland scenery.
