REVIEWS

Review by Larry Johnson (posted on 21-Oct-2007)

Seldom do I watch a movie more than once...occasionally to pacify someone that is with me and wants to watch a certain movie, BUT I have watched this movie twice and may again. It is so livable and so practical. Yet, moving and fulfilling for my hopes and even for my fantasies. The absence of really big names in a movie like this is definitely an asset. Given credit where it is due, every actor/actress, including the children, was absolutely tremendous. Very realistic and believable. So refreshing and encouraging. I only wish they would produce more movies with such low key, high impact effects. I believe that every person involved in this movie, including the off screen team (Producer, Director, etc.) had their hearts set on making this a wonderful creation, which it did indeed turn out to be. I have always watched movies from a technical point of view, but I found myself continually being drawn into the story and touched emotionally to the point of joy and of tears. Thumbs up for a great job. Keep it up. I am the consumer and I have spoken.
