"I love this movie because of Campbell Scott's unrequited love for Kimberly Williams-Paisley's character. Campbell Scott plays a doctor who is totally devoted to his sister-in-law and her child (who was born disabled), yet he doesn't step over the line...he's a true gentleman. Eric Close (who plays Kimberly's husband) also acts well as Campbell's brother and Kimberly's husband. He can't deal with his daughter's disabilities, but still loves his wife. Kimberly's character (Dianne) learns the true meaning of love whereas Eric's character still is shallow and uncompromising. During the 6 years they are apart Kimberly grows as a single parent who loves her daughter no matter what and who is at ease with herself and the choices she has made. Eric on the other hand, still hasn't learned that love which comes from the heart overcomes many obstacles and can include the love of a daughter who is disabled. The story also includes other contemporary issues such as domestic violence, the loss of a beloved husband, and alcoholism. The story is well written to create down to earth characters and has a happy ending even though Kimberly's character thought it was too late...a must see, I've added this one to my DVD library.Follow The Stars Home"
