An incredible drama in the simplest and purest form...you will experience joy, anger, and even choke on frustration which will mold into a triumphant finale.
See this it's good for your soul.

A pleasant film, a bit too slow moving though. Nice but unexceptional performances, pleasing cinematography. It?s well enough done but it?s nothing particularly special.

Sidney Poitier can do no wrong in my book. This was a sweet movie where he plays a 91 year old man who is still in good shape and continues to work. He lives a simple life but land developers try and have him declared incompetent in order to seize his property. It was a cute movie that will make you feel good.
