Storyline

Since her husband expelled sweet son Paul for a drinking problem, widow Ruth feels abandoned by the family in her vast, stately home. Her suicide attempt by drugs is frustrated by snooty homeless Billy, who is mistaken for a mugger and arrested at Ruth's lawyer daughter's instigation. Ruth has Billie released and is determined to reward the ingrate, ultimately coming up with converting her home into a private rehab facility. That appalls her daughter and her snobbish neighbors, who hire posh lawyer Todd Preston. Being the daughter's ex, Todd inadvertently brings her in on Ruth's side. Written by KGF Vissers

Our House
14 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a heartwarming movie. It's been a long time since a movie touched me enough to make me cry, and this one did. I've always loved Doris Roberts. She sent me her autographed photo last year after I wrote her to compliment her biography and ask for confirmation for a recipe in her book. She really makes this movie. I didn't see how the plot could possibly overcome the conflict but in a little twist, everything was set right in a bittersweet ending. A bit of a fairy tale in having someone take in all these warm and wonderful homeless people but don't we need a fairy tale sometimes to carry us through? You can't miss with this one if you crave something beyond the usual murder and crime scene analysis. This has none of that overworked theme. I wish there was a book but eureka, it seems to be an original screenplay. Bravo to Michael Lach.
