Storyline

Dr. Jake Mitchell supervises a Nova Scotia halfway-house for brain injury patients. Richard Jr. 'Rick' Spencer, a Harvard-elect whose brain was crippled in a car accident, gets on spectacularly well with unorthodox nurse Denise Di Fiori, who was fired from a city hospital for ignoring the doctor, and her darling boy Sam, who misses his divorced dad in daily life. Rick loves working in Sam's uncle Sal's pizza-parlor, and by accident becomes a local hero. Jake gets a crush on Denise, which renders Rick jealous. Richard Sr., a top lawyer, decides to break them up at all cost. Written by KGF Vissers

Freedom found on Liberty Street
31 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Denise oversteps her authority as an ER nurse and finds herself working at a mental facilities halfway house called Liberty Street. Reluctant about working at what she feels is a convalescent center, she nevertheless finds herself helping Rick who was involved in a car accident when he was 16 and now at 25 is struggling to become independent. The strength of this movie is the realistic dialog and slice-of-life characters. Denise is both strong and vulnerable, and very likable in her roles as nurse, mother, and life coach. Rick plays his part admirably, yet the time element given seems his growth was rushed. Jake, the on-call facilities doctor, is a great touch of warmth to the script,and Lucy the director of Liberty Street, lends her strength and compassion for working with "damaged" people. Some of the plot is formula driven--overbearing, protective father who hinders the recovery of his son, a crisis between patient and nurse, a faltering relationship, a misunderstanding that gets resolved--but it's how it all works together that makes this another notable Hallmark production. Annabeth Gish, as Denise, really pulls this all together. Definitely keep this one in mind for family viewing, as it combines humor, poignancy, and discussion possibilities.
