This was a wonderful, clean, touching, movie, and I thank Showtime for airing it. It wasn't the usual garbage type of movie they will sometimes actively promote. The whole premise of the movie is restoration, nurturing, and forgiveness. It certainly brings all that to the screen in a wonderfully delicate manner, and I loved seeing the emotions that seemed so real.
Kevin Zegers could be the reincarnation of Leonard Whiting of "Romeo and Juliet(1968)" fame. What a cutie and great actor! Gena Rowlands is excellent, as usual, and I can't wait to see her "Wild Iris" on Showtime tomorrow.
