Awesome movie
19 June 2005 | by neb_f_1959See all my reviews

I just love this movie. I know it's a sappy tearjerker but I think it's a terrific movie. I've been a fan of Melissa Gilbert for years and Bruce Greenwood is SO sexy. I have never been able to catch the whole movie but what I saw was great. I also am a incurable romantic so this movie was right up my alley.

I really believe in the great light and life after death and I can only hope that my soul collector looks like Bruce Greenwood.

This movie resembles a book I once read, "An Angel for Emily" and i enjoyed that book immensely. I don't know if this movie was taken from that book but I found both very enjoyable.

I can only hope to see more of Melissa Gilbert and definitely of Bruce Greenwood.

Sincerely, Doris Killin
