Nice little family movie
10 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

12 year old Casey Baker (Jordy Benattar) lost her mother 8 years before. Her father Jeffrey (James Gallanders) hides in his work. She's left with her grandfather Charlie (Tom Bosley) often. While Jeffrey is away on a business trip, Charlie has a heart attack but he doesn't want to spend his remaining time dealing with his illness. Dr. Robert Graham (Barclay Hope) may have a clinical trial and Jeffrey can't deal with the possibility of losing Charlie. Dr. Fran Gilford (Cara Pifko) works with Dr. Graham as well as his ex.

It's real nice to see Tom Bosley doing work and he looks great in one of his last few movies. He looks sharp. Jordy Benattar is cute and has some spunk to her. They have a nice sweet chemistry together. I would be fine if this movie is only about them. On the other, I found the father rather bland and I don't really feel invested in his relationship with Dr. Gilford. It's a TV movie and it has about that level of production value. I also wish the writing was sharper for Bosley to play with. Little Jordy is able to bring the emotional punch. It's a nice low key family movie.
