Nice Story
2 June 2017 | by stantonheckjrSee all my reviews

The makers of this film wisely decided to make this a short film rather than stretching out this out into a 2 hour time slot. We we have is a story that moves at a quick pace and you never are bored.

In this film television icon Katherine Helmond co stars with another icon Sid Caesar. Katherine plays Widow Mutterance a candy store owner in the 1940's. She is being evicted because the landlord (Sid Caesar) wants her out so he can turn the space into a laundry mat. By doing this he can make more money.

Later on the landlord ends up "Missing". There is a freak Snowstorm that is happening and the only person willing to look for him is the Widow Mutterance.

This is a well made film. The message here is "Kindness has rewards"
