Sitting on 35 acres of Georgia land coveted by a shopping mall developer, 90+years-old Noah Dearborn is untainted by modern life. He's never heard of the Beatles, and his only interest is his woodworking, in which he excels. The girlfriend of one of the developers is a psychologist, and is asked to evaluate Noah for a possible move to have him declared incompetent.

I think this is a very under-rated movie. It won't appeal to many people perhaps, but for a safe, wholesome, pure, lovely movie about the unattractiveness of selfishness, there's few better. The plot is simple but effective, the speed slow, there's no action, no violence, no comedy, no special effects, little drama even (but watching the trailer above reminded me that there's more in the movie than I remembered).
I went away from the movie more relaxed than perhaps from any other that I've ever seen.
For those who want artificial excitement to escape for a while, go elsewhere. For those who want to have their high standards and morals encouraged, go out of your way to watch this once in your life.
