An excellent family drama
5 May 2003 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday at the Sprockets Film Festival in Toronto and it was excellent. It was an amazing family drama that made you laugh and cry. A very enjoyable movie for the entire family to sit down to and enjoy together. This movie teaches life lessons that all children should be taught. Although it had a very small cast, EVERY single person in that cast was EXTREMELY talented, no matter how big or small their roles were. Perfect movie, perfect cast, perfect directing, perfect writing... perfect EVERYTHING!!
