Storyline

Years ago, Scott left common lover Katherine at the altar to become a hedonistic junkie. She married his brother William, a successful Louisiana workaholic, who sired a daughter but probably not bright nerd son Charles and is serially adulterous on his many business trips. Now Scott returns on horseback, having lost his drivers permit, inviting himself and proving a popular, yet unreliable uncle for Charles. Making up with father is impossible due to Alzheimer. As Scott keeps surprising his family, his sad secret emerges. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Katherine: [reading to unconscious Scott] After five days of rain, the sun is finally shining. George and I had dinner with Katherine and William and baby Charles last night. He gave us wonderful news; I'm going to be a grandmother again. I remember the day when Katherine said she was pregnant with Charles. It brought so much joy to our family. We threw all the calendars out the window, even though the time Katherine last saw Scott and started seeing William was only the difference of a few weeks. ...

great movie
20 February 2014 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie and love the story line. Really surprised with the low ratings. The movie was touching and well put together and the acting was good. I loved the kids and how they played their parts well. Loved all of the characters in the film and the music was fitting and it was touching too. Could have been done better? maybe. Probably with a larger budget it could have been more of a hit but it was a quite touching and not too loud kind of a film. I have seen bad movies win rewards and trophies and get high ratings but honestly this one should have won something because it was touching and worm and spoke of how sometimes death could bring a family together.
