Excellent.....why 3.7 as all reviews excellent??????
Lovely heartwarming film, good pace, simply done but big subject of grief, belief, trust and all the ingredients of life!! Acting very good and not 'cheesy' in any way. A film for all to watch, clean, good straight forward storyline with a little magic thrown in. Don't know why this has a low rating as all reviews are very good??? The learning curve for a grieving dad who blames himself for his son's death and his relationship with his wife is delivered at a good believable pace. With a need to feel empathy for him and the grieving mother is well delivered so the ongoing happenings are a joy to you, the viewer, and you share the storyline. It needs at least an 8.5. Albeit there are only 5 reviews to date I know and 'I believe' you will enjoy!!!!.
