A Relatable Joy!
6 December 2014 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

What a lovely film!!

This is a story you can enjoy with your whole family. And though it touches on truly, challenging topics (death, health care hardships, financial unfairness) it does so respectfully and in a family friendly manner.

Walter, John Heard's character, is infinitely likable! As are the majority of the other characters. The laughs are mostly comfortable and at times a much needed release from a difficult situation.

A true joy, Stealing Roses is a film about love, moments, and adventure told in a refreshingly relatable way. I loved it!
