A Good Family Movie to Watch
10 March 2010 | by casemqueensu_1981See all my reviews

My wife and I have watched Thicker Than Water starring Melissa Gilbert several times and we enjoy the movie. It's got an interesting and rather unusual plot about two half sisters that find each other, each living in quite different spheres. One sister is a lawyer in LA and the other a rancher who honours her mother's memory by taking care of mustangs. Both women share a father who led a secretive past.

One thing we like about this movie is that it is clean. There isn't one cuss word in it.

The scenery is exceptionally beautiful.

It is a touching movie which one discovers as the movie unfolds.

We would highly recommend it for family viewing.
