While Mrs Rigsby is cutting Wesley's hair, she quotes scripture to him, stating "The Bible says, if your hand causes you to steal, then cut it off." In the DVD version, she makes a snipping motion with her scissors in front of his mouth, adding "same goes for your tongue, too". See more »
a great drama highlighting that "everyone deserves a second chance!"
This is truly a heart warming tale played very well by the handsome Jonathan Taylor Thomas and incredible Ellen Burstyn. It is a movie filled with faith, inspiration to not only help others but to see the good in people and to never give up one someone because everyone deserves a second chance.Through this movie i learned that a child needs to be loved, clothed, fed and educated and with those things they will aspire to be great. Ellen Burstyn's character does just that, she gives juvenile delinquent Wesley a chance because she knows in her heart that there is some good in him just like there is in everyone. I describe it as a forgotten movie that's not viewed by many but should be and is great for people like me who enjoy good dramas with a life changing message. It's truly a great movie where both characters truly develop and grow. It is not only the elderly woman (Burstyn) that helps the boy but also on a deeper level we're able to see how much the boy helps her and brings her back to life. A must see!
