Storyline

Gossett and Rowlands find themselves in a dispute over the custody of a young adorable biracial girl who just happens to be their grandchild. The child's (Jacey) parents are Gossett's son and Rowland's daughter and have died in a tragic accident leaving the granddaughter's custody up in the air. Both Grandparents want custody, but Rowlands is an older Southern woman who still easily sees the difference between black and white and it is deeper than just skin color. Gossett is also older and not without his preconceived notions of whites either, but together they get to know each other as people, not stereotypes, through the love of a grandchild. Written by India Mitchell

Rowlands is superb
8 October 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Gina Rowlands, an actress that I have admired for many years, again turns in an honest beautiful performance. Remember has as the mother in AN EARLY FROST? She seems to touch on the humanity of her characters and without effort brings this honesty to the screen. I admire her immensely and am always glad when she appears in any film.

This one in particular brings so many issues to focus with simplicity and sometimes touching moments. I won't relate the story as you must see this when you can. It teaches us all a simple lesson that is often difficult for many to learn. The scene where Miss Rowlands comes to the realization that her granddaughter is partly African American is worth the whole film to see.

Then add Louis Gossett Jr. as the little girl's grandfather and you have two legends working in the same movie. They both were amazing to watch. Neither missed a beat.

Penny Bae Bridges was the little granddaughter and she was excellent. It is hard to believe she was a young as she was for she played the role to perfection. I credit this also to her director, Sheldon Larry. I'm sure he worked hard and thorough with her explaining the art of acting and the camera. And she learned to relate this on film. It was also good to see Penny Fuller in this as the not so understanding friend to Gina.

Hats off to a marvelous movie written equally wonderful by Nancy Silvers.
