You have a modest humor, Gideon. I appreciate that. So many men today are filled with their own self-importance. They wear their success and intellect for the world to see. But they are merely shields. A true man is not afraid to show himself... his inner self. He relies on who he is, rather than what he is. I have always thought that one should move through life accumulating silent victories. I believe that you are such a man, Gideon. One who walks the quiet road.

Gideon Dobbs has a magical ability to bring forth the seemingly lost desire for life in those around him.
What do you get when you put a cast of legendary actors together with one of the most talented actors who's movies are generally hard to find in the United States? Christopher Lambert portrays Gideon Dobbs, a simple man, who touches others out of genuine love for them - maybe without even knowing he's doing it - or maybe because of that genuine love he has for them. He puts their needs before his own and brings them back to the life they thought was long lost.
His small acts of kindness may seem trivial, but the impact of those acts change people's lives forever, and bring joy where joy was no more.
Charlton Heston, Carroll O'Connor, Shelley Winters, Shirley Jones - all of the cast in this movie bring the humor and emotion that we so crave and miss in today's movie productions. Brad Mirman's writing is excellent and his scripts should be watched closely in the future. Claudia Hoover's direction is high quality.
Don't miss this movie. The world desperately needs more of the same.
