I was rather sceptical before watching this film. I had seen so many crappy lovely plots of this kind in the past.
But I must admit this one positively surprised me. This film conveys great valors which people nearly forgot nowadays.
Sidney Poitier is really moving in this film. The kind of grandfather, brother, husband, whatever, that everyone would like to have. His kindness and inner sorrows make him someone really intelligent and touching. Mary-Louise Parker plays also very well. Through her behaviour and her thoughts, the viewer starts to understand why Noah Dearborn is such a wonderful person and what life should be made of.
The only thing I found quite disappointing about this film is the fact that they don't share any kiss on the mouth, which I've been waiting for till the end... :-)
But still, it remains a nice and well shot film. Worth seeing for sure !
