I saw this movie because of the previews. Chase Crawford is one hot, clean, decent guy. I am glad I watched it because his dad was an old familiar face to me. I thought the woman playing the mother got in many ways what she deserved until the very end. I don't mean a mother should lose a child for any reason but her attitude really needed some work. I do not understand why there is no information on this movie as yet but at least it now shows up when I request the title. I think that over the next few years the name Chace Crawford will appear more and more. At least I hope so. He brought that special something that made me root for the entire family. Dad got what he deserved in the end too. A place to sit and reflect. ha ha. Such dedication from a mother is something I would like to see more of today on TV. Maybe the networks will soon drop those stupid reality shows and go back to things like LONG LOST SON. Anyway I highly recommend this movie. It is just one notch above a movie of the week and will bring out feelings you may have not felt in a long while with the stuff being put on TV today.
