A grandfather and his granddaughter face off
25 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very touching movie about a spunky young girl who plays soccer and her moody grandfather. When the girl's mother has to start working longer hours at a clothing store, the girl's moody grandfather must start taking care of her after school. The development of this relationship is sweet and entertaining. Also, it's something we don't see depicted very often in the movies. The acting in the movie is generally excellent. As the girl bond's to her grandfather and begins to reject her father, family tensions increase. I was particularly impressed by the actress Julie Carpenter, who portrays the girl's mother. She brought a very real quality to this character who tries to keep peace in the family.
