A man discovers the world and himself just in time
28 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

See this beautiful, loving drama. Every character a gem. A super script. Rich and excellent acting. Laugh, love, cry. This is what it's all about. Movies can enlighten us and release us. Sometimes they actually do.
