Heart-tugging, fun and family-friendly
6 August 2014 | by randall-122-481317See all my reviews

Summer Snow is the gripping story of a family devastated by death, but recovering and re-discovering that life is precious and life can still be fulfilling. Hallie, the youngest family member at age eight, is phenomenal, and her character adds a whimsical and sometimes humorous touch to the movie's serious theme as she tries to help everyone around her -- selling Dad's treasured video tapes in a garage sale, using a hair dryer to bake terrible cookies for the neighbor, and selling toothbrushes to raise money for a classmate's dental work.

Taken as a whole, the film is engaging and entertaining, even as it focuses on the major issue. A teenage son and an older daughter both face their own issues, and Dad is at a total loss trying to be both mom and dad. Cast and crew combine to make this a home-run film for families looking for wholesome entertainment with solid family values.
