Quotes

[Last lines]
Ben Morton: [narrating] There are mountain top experiences in our journey through this world. Those *rare* and lucid moments when *everything* seems right and *anything* is possible. There are those ordinary days when we may not be thrillingly aware of what lies in the future, but we know it's still out there. There are also those strange times when things do not add up or make sense, when we seem to be forgotten, when heavens are brass, but it's *all* the moments, good and bad that make up life...

Heartwarming message, but romantic drama falls flat.
10 March 2017 | by sam-97903See all my reviews

This story focuses on the relationship between a loving couple -- and how they weather the ups, downs, and unexpected curve balls life throws at them.

Although there's a tragic twist (which drives a sad character to destruction in a few scenes), overall it's a family-focused film with a solid marriage at its center.

Language is limited to one "oh God" said in a heated moment, and while the main characters are very affectionate.

The message of the movie'd be: Keep going, no matter what kind of hardship comes your way. But the execution is flawed, and there's little here that makes Ben and Ava's story truly compelling to watch.
