Storyline

Harry Jenkins is a self-made business man, who one day receives a message that his only daughter has died in a car crash. Last time he saw his daughter was at his wife's funeral. When trying to deal with his daughter's affairs, he finds out he is a grandfather of a nine-year-old girl, named Saffron. Since he is her only relative, social services hands over Saffron to him. At first he tries to get rid of her, but he soon finds out that they share more than his daughter, Saffron's mother. They take a trip from Manchester to London, to find Saffron's estranged father, but they find so much more. Written by Louise J-L

Like Goodnight Mister Tom, very moving
10 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was John Thaw's last role before he sadly passed away, so this is very special to me. The story, while a tiny bit predictable, runs on a parallel with Goodnight Mister Tom, a grumpy widower, reluctantly taking care of a child and ending up loving them. In this case, it is about Harry Jenkins, whose estranged daughter has died, and he has to take care of her daughter, who wants to know her father. As usual, the direction and camera-work is beautiful, the script is funny and touching and the acting consistently superb. Although I felt a sense of reluctance in his character, John Thaw is wholly convincing as Harry, who like Tom goes through a change of heart. Dominique Jackson is amusing and cute, might I add, as his granddaughter Saffron, and kudos to everyone else as well. There were some truly moving scenes, especially the ending, where I saw a side to John Thaw that I never noticed. Well recommended, 9.5/10. Bethany Cox
