My small town local theatre didn't get it in. Instead they opted for a comedy. I chose to go instead, to the next town over and see this. It was well worth it. This is a very touching story with enough humour to lighten the mood. Chris Klein is a wonderful actor and really played his part well. The man brought tears to my eyes. Leelee Sobieski was as good in this as she was in Joan of Arc. Josh Hartnett who plays her small town (boy)friend was so sweet you almost wanted him to get the girl. The 3 actors have very bright futures ahead of them. As long as they choose their roles as wisely as they chose these.
