wonderful movie, fine acting
3 February 2019 | by geoffox-766-418467See all my reviews

Brady Smith walks off with this film. He is terrific as a father who discovers his teen-aged daughter is pregnant. What he goes through is such fine acting. The rest of the cast is commendable including Parker Stephenson playing a bad character in this for a change. Smith shows such natural emotions as he goes through the paces of a difficult role. I couldn't keep my eyes off of him in every scene. We follow his attempts in being a single dad to his discovering his daughter is pregnant to trying to figure out how to handle the situation to the acceptance of her condition and wishes. A magnificent performance and I don't use that wording much in LMN movies,
