Beautiful well -done movie that touches the heart.
20 April 2019 | by paul-knudsonSee all my reviews

Without a spoiler, the movie is a nuanced celebration of life through forgiveness. It is very well done and the acting is to be applauded - I never really thought they were acting it was so believable. There is no love without truth - this movie reveals the truth in love. The music is wonderful as well. Best movie I have seen in awhile. Open your heart to hear its sublime message.
