Perhaps the characters are a bit underwritten, but this is a feel good film that is not wildly ambitious.
Wendy Hughes and Chris Haywood are good in the lead roles but the supporting characters -- an assortment of bubbly tourists and small-town eccentrics -- just aren't original or interesting enough.
It's not designed to leave audiences rolling in the aisles, but it will put a smile on your face and make its way into your heart.
The MacRaes direct with a sure enough hand for The View From Greenhaven to feel like an accomplished debut.
The gentle toughness of the subject is perhaps deceptive, as the Macrae brothers embark on a story about a man who has shut down three decades ago and has just about used up all the leeway his family is prepared to give him.
