Perhaps taking this message a bit too seriously, Pete decides it's his goal for the summer to help someone get into heaven; having been told that Catholicism is the only sure path to the kingdom of the Lord, Pete decides to convert a Jew to Catholicism in order to improve their standing in the afterlife. Hoping to find a likely candidate, Pete begins visiting a nearby synagogue, where he gets to know Rabbi Jacobson, who responds to Pete's barrage of questions with good humor. Pete also makes friends with the Rabbi's son, Danny, who is about the same age; when he learns that Danny is seriously ill, he decides Danny would be an excellent choice for conversion. When the priest at Pete's church informs Pete that all will be tested before they pass the... Written by Anonymous

THE definition of "Heartwarming"
13 April 2002 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

"Stolen Summer" is the ultimate heart warmer. While it isn't a GREAT story, and it does have its cliches, it is good enough to hold somebody's attention. Kevin Pollock is surprisingly good, as are Aidan Quinn and Brian Dennehey. Overall, it was pretty enjoyable.
