Audience Reviews for Breathing Lessons

RT has the wrong movie info for this movie. I saw the John Erman movie as described in the movie info and it was a Hallmark Hall of Fame made for TV film. That film was not what I had hoped for as the book its based on is a Pulitzer prize winning book. James Garner made me stay with the film but aside from him it didn't make much of an impression .
