Trivia

Jane's boss' name in this movie is Mr Jorkin. Ebenezer's Scrooge's boss' name is also Mr. Jorkin in the 1951 version of The Christmas Carol starring Alistar Sims. The name is too specific for this to be a coincidence. Obviously, this was a reference to the older movie. See more »

I think its a very good movie
19 July 2006 | by Maham .See all my reviews

I really liked the movie ,it is perhaps a note for people who are too much in the world and have no pity to help the old and homeless. It makes it possible for a person like Jane to change in to a good person like Sam.I think the acting in the movie is flawless and Steven Eckholdt is a very complete actor. It is certainly a thought provoking movie.Even the minute character of Sam's mother in law is full of life representing a women who thinks not beyond her materialistic world and is unhappy to see her successful daughter ending up in a life she would never choose for her.I think the understanding of the couple in the movie is serene and yes it is a movie worth watching.
