Well-acted, "feel good" movie; laced with humor, wisdom, & humanity
My reaction to this movie was one of surprise & delight! I had no idea that Canada's Gordon Pinsent wrote such poignant screenplays. The premise of the story is intriguing, however, it is definitely a film for lovers of drama, not action. Acting is superb. The characters are interesting & evolve in fascinating ways before our eyes. The film is full of messages about life, hope, and human nature. There is a lot to smile & laugh at here, too. I hope you will take the time to discover this little gem!
It appears to have been written for TV or the stage & contains fade-outs appropriate for television commercials or scene changes. I watched it on commercial-free TV & this was the only thing that I found mildly off-putting.
