Heart warming
2 November 2019 | by steve-915-115210See all my reviews

I know what it's like to move between the city and the country, and I do it regularly as I enjoyed both lifestyles. Of course, there is much more to this movie than that. I found it refreshing, relatively realistic, and of course, extremely heartwarming. There was just enough emotion to keep me engaged, but it wasn't sappy, and it was relatively realistic. Of course, any movie cannot tell the full story, and there were a few loose ends in the saga that were never closed off. Yet, it was heartwarming and engaging.
