Amid all of today's ultra-hip, edgy shows, it is so nice to see something so normal. I must be a throw-back to the old days because I would far prefer to watch this kind of movie than the majority of what is produced today. I could have done without the whole German POW thing which was a little unbelievable. Also, the friendship with the two internment camp detainees was a little distracting. That time could have been spent focusing on the day to day lives of Ray & Livy. I have to admit that I would have preferred to see them fall in love and at least share the same bedroom before the baby was born. Mare Winningham was fabulous, as always. I would love to see a continuation of this family. There are so many issues that could be addressed - Daniel discovering his history, Livy & her family, more children. Of course, Daniel is about the right age to have been drafted during Vietnam - that alone would make a great movie!
