Movie Reviews

A heartwarming flick on a sensitive issue
John D. Hernandez Jr. | Tampa | 11/20/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a 35 year old male, and although I don't have any of my own kids, I can say this film did a great job of making a soulful journey for a man that is wanting to keep his family in tact, while the wife is feeling that the relationship has ended. There are two kids involved, but the poetic nature of the film treats these matters with great delicacy and love in the midst of adversity. The pleasantness of this film is the simplicity of what is real an important. The relationship between him and his daughter is precious. One previous film done by this director: Simple Life of Noah Dearborn. I have not seen that one, but I am looking forward to it now after seeing this film."

"David James Elliott plays James Dodson who experiences two major losses, his fathers' death and the end of his marriage. Conflicting emotions are portrayed in a realistic manner as Dodson grapples with his inner turmoil as well as the pain of his young daughter on a road trip where he revisits places that were important in his past. Acceptance of the losses comes gradually - no Hollywood quick fix here - as Dodson finds he can survive these painful experiences and move on. Sensitive and insightful."

"I purchased this DVD mainly because I'm a JAG-fan and wanted to see something else acting D.J.Elliott. I'm glad I did. This is a wonderful, quiet film, with unexpected depths. Since then, I've watched it many-many times, read Dodson's novel and almost all the other books he mentions. A good film lead me to a deeper knowledge of American literature and culture. Thanks D.J.E.!"
Very Good

"Acting was very realistic. David Elliot is brilliant in this one. You get a real feel for the sadness this family goes through as it is on the brink of divorce, but with the sadness is also hope for a new beginning!Great movie for all ages!!"
