Touching film
14 January 2003 | by east215See all my reviews

A very simple yet touching film. I saw this years ago. A real heart-breaker. Richard Thomas and Mary Layne have a real on-screen chemistry. Get your handkerchiefs ready, you'll definitely need them. Why this isn't shown more often is a mystery.
