I saw this movie to support my friends, Juli Erickson and Bill Flynn. But I never dreamed how this movie would touch my heart! The storyline, interactions of the characters, cast and crew, cinematography, and locations, were sheer genius! It made me look into my own life and see that I needed some work on my family relationships. I had tears in my eyes when I shook Mr. Huckabee's hand, thankful that I was able to experience something that so touched my heart. Don't get so caught up in your everyday lives, that you miss the importance of nurturing your family relationships. Tom, thank you for having the insight and heart to make this amazing film possible! I hope everyone gets to see this!!
