Sweet, wry, funny and uplifting
25 February 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This movie is very pretty to look at, with terrific editing and soundtrack. The story is warm and sweet, but not the least bit treacley. The very first scene immediately draws you into what's to come. A comforting "family is what it's all about" moral with a wonderfully awkward love story.
