Safe Harbor- A People for All Seasons ****
3 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nancy Travis and Treat Williams portray a retiring couple ready to venture forth on the sea when a court person, Orson Bean, asks them to watch some troubled youth. You know that this will not become a temporary position.

The film succeeds because of the restrained performances, especially by Treat Williams. Usually a hyperactive character in his roles, Williams beautifully tones down to play a man who had earlier trouble with the law and was therefore sympathetic to the needs of these boys.

The film is great because it shows what the couple had to go through with an agent of the social service department. A bitter woman, who was once victimized by a charge that she watched over, her bitterness now is to try to take advantage of a system that could truly destroy the boys once and for all.

Shunned by the community, the boys shall have to work hard to gain the respect.

When they come to admit that they wished this couple had been their parents, who will definitely shed a tear.

Strongly advise others to see this worthwhile effort.
