Louis Gossett, Jr. and Gena Rowlands find themselves in a dispute over the custody of a young adorable bi-racial girl, who just happens to be their grandchild. The child's (Jacey's) parents are Gossett's son and Rowland's daughter, and have died in a tragic accident leaving the granddaughter's custody up in the air. Both grandparents want custody, but Rowlands is an older Southern woman who still easily sees the difference between black and white, and it is deeper than just skin color. Gossett is also older and not without his preconceived notions of whites either, but together, they get to know each other as people, not stereotypes, through the love of a grandchild.

Wonderful film about the creation of a new family
20 March 2000 | by temoSee all my reviews

This film was excellent. A Southern Widow gets the call every mother dreads "there's been an accident". Imagine her surprise when moments after she finds out her daughter is gone forever, that she has a grand-daughter. At first Granma is all too ready to hand the child off to anyone else, but a twist of fate gives her some extra time with Jacey. Penny Bae Bridges is excellent in the role of a confused, loving little girl and Gena Rowlands as the conflicted southern gentlewoman...... Louis Gossett Jr. was a wonderful(as always) Grampa, so loving to his Granddaughter and so cold to Georgia. And I just loved Stella Parton!
