A beautifully written and directed film with lovingcharacters
18 May 2002 | by (Thousand Oaks, California) – See all my reviews

My wife and I saw the film at a movie class. It was a beautifully written, with loving characters and an ensemble cast. John Mahoney was superb in the lead role. It was a "throwback" movie in the sense there were no four-letter words, and there was no violence, and no explicit sex scenes (although the movie was intensely romantic). We found ourselves talking about the movie and its meaning in the days thereafter.

In enjoyed the film so much that I undertook to contact the producer and director. With the producer's help, I actually held a screening of the film, with my friends as guests. I am not in the film business in any way, and had never even been to a screening myself. I have now seen the film three times, and find nuances in it on each occasion I was not aware of before.
