Overall, a really good movie about a teenage high school boy left to care for two sisters on his own and the ensuing struggles. Kevin Sorbo as Abel, wanders into a small Texas town and starts working at the high school as a janitor where he and the boy meet & are made to work together, each carrying a secret and both unwilling to reach out for help. The performances are solid, there's not too much cheesy romantic goop, and the plot moves along nicely. The main drawback for me is the ending with too many questions about Abel (Kevin Sorbo) and a couple loose ends not tied up, such as the crime. I would have appreciated more character development/insight into Abel, Sorbo's character personally. There's a legal flaw as well... in that a high crime has allegedly been committed with premeditation apparently (or was it?) -- and if so, the legal penalty is askew. However, other than these minor points, it's a great family movie, entertaining, and one that feels the passion of the actors for this project.
