Daddy's Little Girl
18 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since I watched this on the Sundance Channel, I had no expectations. I have seen the lead actress Mimi Kuzyk and the lead actor Peter Stebbings in other things, so I decided to try it. This is a sweet little film about a special relationship. The father is actually someone who rescues a little girl who was abandoned. The movie is many times in flashback, and it is these scenes that are much more interesting. The little girl, it turns out, has a congenital heart defect, so her father agrees to help in what was then an experimental procedure. The story weaves in and out from the past to present. The present part of the story is not as compelling. The movie is overtly sentimental, and it moved me. The pace is necessarily slow. Not a great movie, but one which I did not entertain the notion of turning off. That alone, to me, makes it a film to recommend.
