The stars of this sweet, under-rated romantic drama are Stockard Channing and Sam Waterston. Both deserve kudos for their under played, believable performances.
Waterston does a great job as the romantic lead, giving an excellent performance as Travis Coles, a professional Cellist. Coles slowly comes to sympathize with and appreciate Channing's character, the shy but brilliant special ed teacher, Leah Lazenby. The slow recognition of mutual attraction is particularly well done.
The contrast and interplay between Leah's roles as a teacher of the most difficult special needs students and as the owner of a boarding house dealing with each of her tenants makes this made for TV movie worth seeing.
