A movie that i checked out on video.It is a little low budget,but it is a heart warming movie that really reaches you.Timothy Bottoms is casted great as a con on the run from the law.And Linda Purl is a stand out as a person with learning problems who can't read.This is a movie that you should not miss.If you have a chance don't pass it up on video..
