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>

One of my favorite movies!
16 June 2003 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

"Follow the Stars Home" has been added to the list of mu favorite movies. Follow the Stars Home is ABSOLUELY FANTASTIC!! I really didn't expect it to be at first...but as soon as I saw the first half hour, I just wanted to keep on watching.

The cast is extremely good! Kimberly Williams portrayed Diane so well! I loved the storyline...Diane loving Mark, and Mark's brother David loving Diane. The ending was fabulous! (I thought anyways!)

I guarantee you that "Follow the Stars Home" is a movie worth watching!
