Storyline

Two brothers - one virtuous, one feckless - are in love with the same woman. She falls for Brother Wrong, carrying a torch for him even after he deserts her. But Brother Right remains steadfast and available. What's unusual here is why the bad brother pulls his disappearing act. Mark walks out on wife Dianne after learning that the baby they're expecting has severe genetic abnormalities. Dianne is nonetheless determined to bear her child, with support from her mother and Mark's brother David, a pediatrician whose love for Dianne is unspoken but obvious. How do they cope with the challenges of raising this little girl named Julia? Written by Terry Kelleher <people.com>

True and somewhat Heartwarming
18 April 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

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.
