The patronizing, gratuitous sentimentality undermines what could and should have been a simple story of courage and beauty.
Pete McCormack's script only occasionally yields to melodrama. Mostly it allows the characters to breathe freely, expressing a greater range of human emotion than just love and sympathy.
Feels as forced and sentimental as one of those disease-of-the-week melodramas that were once the mainstay of U.S. television.
If this film was of an American Beauty-standard, wouldn't it be wasted on the ten-year-olds and grandmothers that the production is really geared towards?
