Storyline

Norwegian youngster Oddmund Lindeflaten arrives on central Kansas buffalo farm, reluctantly run by Unitarian widow Helen Hazleton since the founder's recent cancer death, as atypical male au-pair for the two orphaned sons. Nearly same-age Atticus is aloof and gloomy, but kid Beau quickly takes to the Viking jock and even adopts his obsession, soccer. Oddmund proves a fine father figure, winning the confidence of all kids and their friends, gradually even assembling an odd soccer team. Mother Helen clearly has a crush on him, as on school coach Bobby, but after jumping the Norwegian's bones acts as if he abused the family, never having forgiven late husband Charlie being bisexual, demands his repatriation. She even pushes the lesbian sheriff to investigate an absurd gay assault claim, just when Oddmund's Norwegian ex-fiancee arrives as if they were still engaged, but her sons take the lead in resisting such absurd ingrate injustice.

Great film
14 August 2011 | by afmprojectSee all my reviews

I can't recommend this film highly enough. Traci Lords has become quite the actress and brings a great performance to a woman who feels betrayed by a husband who she wonders if he ever loved her and who left her all too soon. Trying to give her boys a role model she hires a male Norwegian au pair. This is a movie about dealing with loss and coming to terms with it. The acting is top notch, the small Kansas town is charming with some great scenery, and the writing is believable.

The au pair is obsessed with soccer and it is through soccer that he bonds with the kids and much of the rest of the town. Meanwhile the mom (Lords) becomes suspicious of the au pair for a variety of reasons. One device used through out the film is that of having the husband speak both as a ghost and via video tapes. It effectively establishes his relationships with both his wife and his kids. You won't be sorry you watched this film.
