Have a heart...
29 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Interestingly, I happened on this film thinking it would be just another strain of the same old story: parents need child, child needs parents, the cosmos brings them together, happy ending. However, this film had something in the mix that is missing from a lot of others of this genre: heart. It has a lot of heart. The story was written in a way that would give the viewer the chance to really experience the sheer pain of losing a child, and the director was successful in communicating this without soliciting my sympathy, but rather enabling my empathy. And talent: Jeff Fahey -- riveting as the husband losing ground in life; Caia Coley -- director and lead -- was stunning as the self-absorbed wife and mother who suffered greatly at the loss of her son, but had an epiphany that changed her life forever. A tender piece with a lot of heart. Watch this movie!
