A better than average movie; a pleasant escape.
5 October 2002 | by alancoSee all my reviews

Nice to see a movie with a moral, a good cast, good performances, especially Hal Holbrook & Keir Dullea. I felt the story was good, and the performances believable, and quite real, other than the characters always being made up. A good family movie.
