I just finished seeing this film, and to be honest I just turned in because nothing else was on and it starred Kimberly Williams in a leading role.
I was very surprised how the film got to me, it wasn't artificial Hollywood feelings or the great cinematography as you see it in Sam Mendes and co. great dramatic films. This film just has a lot of great actors, a subtle soundtrack and a great story.
This is definitely one of the best TV-films I've ever seen, that didn't star a mayor Hollywood name or several.
This is the league of In a Class of His Own which I also find quiet good, but this one is a bit better.
