Storyline

Two brothers - one virtuous, one feckless - are in love with the same woman. She falls for Brother Wrong, carrying a torch for him even after he deserts her. But Brother Right remains steadfast and available. What's unusual here is why the bad brother pulls his disappearing act. Mark walks out on wife Dianne after learning that the baby they're expecting has severe genetic abnormalities. Dianne is nonetheless determined to bear her child, with support from her mother and Mark's brother David, a pediatrician whose love for Dianne is unspoken but obvious. How do they cope with the challenges of raising this little girl named Julia? Written by Terry Kelleher <people.com>

I love this movie!
13 May 2007 | by EbonyfireSee all my reviews

While on the surface this seems like a 'girl marries wrong guy' movie, it truly is so much more. The storyline moves a bit too fast, so you must pay attention...very close attention.

After Dianne and Mark find out their baby will be born with genetic disorders, Mark wants to abort the pregnancy; Dianne refuses - Mark takes off. Evidently Mark has unresolved issues about his mother's death in a hospital - but the movie gives very few details or background, so Mark doesn't generate any sympathy from the viewer.

If only he were more like his brother, David (the excellent Campbell Scott) - the soft-spoken, long-suffering doctor who keeps his love for Dianne to himself while helping her to take care of his niece.

The supporting cast is very good, especially Alexa Vega. The ending is a real tear-jerker (get the tissues ready), and my favorite part of the movie.

Some people don't care for these simple movies about triumphing over adversity, but I think it's wonderful - and you will too.
