So I heard.
Isn't it usual to phone before you visit?
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I like to catch people unawares.
Anyway, there's no point now.
I told you. I cried in front of the child I was hoping to adopt and his - what's it called - his key worker.
Best thing you could have done. Now they're both crazy about you.

This is a moving, touching film. For me a little bit frightening too. In the real world there are some people, who behave like Holt. (Unimportant, but funny that the word "Holt" means Dead in Hungarian which is my first language.) This movie is like a therapy, an advice for unhappy, lonely people. A believable film is a great pleasure nowadays, but if you meet your own life face-to-face in a script, well... it's pretty scary. If you pay attention good enough, it changes your life! Thank God for this film!
