Finally another Baldacci Novel comes to the big screen!
27 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful story of two young siblings transplanted from New York City to rural Virginia and the many lessons about life that occur. David Baldacci is a master story teller with his many books and it is a real treat to see his characters in "Wish You Well" come to life on the big screen. Ellen Burstyn, Josh Lucas, Ned Bellamy, Mackenzie Foy, and JP Vanderloo all are outstanding making their characters real and take the viewer on a wonderful journey back to the 1940's and show what life was like on a typical farm in the Virginia countryside. The movie is filmed on location in the beautiful mountains of Southwest Virginia and the scenes are stunning. This film will make you laugh and cry and will have you leaving the theatre feeling good about your journey.
