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>

The best movie ever... in my opnion!
16 March 2002 | by AndersiohSee all my reviews

Hi, I'm Ander and I'm a 19 year old guy. This movie make me cry at a certain point. I haven't cried over a movie since 'dumbo', when I was about ten years old. But this story just clenched to my heart. It's romantic, sad, happy, beautiful and realistic. And the actors play their roles excellent. If you haven't seen this movie: go see it!! It's so great. I have seen it and I will see it again, and again and again. And so should you. Do not miss it!
