Oren Little has turned his back on all his neighbors and shunned the notion of being kind to others after the death of his wife. Next door neighbor Leah has put her soul, and her tears, into her stagnant singing career after the death of her husband. But then Oren's son shows up needing Oren to take care of his daughter Sarah. Oren has no patience for children, Leah never had any of her own, but 9-year-old Sarah just might be the spark that allows these two lonely souls to turn their home into a Little Shangri-La.

Recently I did not see many Hollywood movies anymore, as often in my opinion they are too much about special effects, and stories lack in soul and depth. And I don't like the typical sci-fi with lots of combat scenes. This movie was different from the usual ones, so I was glad that I have seen it. It's a movie full of warmth of human relationships, and that makes it a really lovely and also touching and very delicate in many parts of it. It's also witty, and makes one laugh a lot. Michael Douglas is brilliant in his character, as well as Diane Keaton and the little girl. It's movie about the up's and down's of life, but full of positive emotions who come out of persons with a quite rough life.
