A heartfelt drama -- wonderful!
24 April 2001 | by denisef5000See all my reviews

This is probably the best dramatic film that I've seen in years. Ellen Burstyn is amazing (as allways). Jonathan Taylor Thomas proves that there is more to his career that Home Improvement! He really turns his character into a rich, developed lead. Probably one of his best efforts. This is an excellent film, its just a pity that it isn't distributed more prominantly. Definitely rent it if you can find it, you won't be disappointed!
