Lance Oppenheim's vision and sensitivity to Reggie and Anne, Barbara, and Dennis was incredible, especially considering the director's age.

The film has a universal message of hope and understanding, and strikes an emotive chord. Rarely does a film make you laugh and yet feel a bit melancholy at the same time.
All said: I watched the film twice and LOVED it. Could see a potential series spin off of the film.
This is a MUST see and kudos to all involved!
