Wilson plays disillusionment convincingly, the supporting cast (especially Barraza) is golden, and director Mark Pellington has just the right touch to bring off a teary-eyed inspirational drama.

If you're a sucker for a New Age-meets-old-time-religion tale and you have nothing else to do this weekend, then this one's for you. Everyone else should stay home.

You can feel the filmmakers' manipulation at every turn, yet there's a melancholy and life-is-a-gift spirit that still conveys.

A charming break-out for Luke Wilson but not the role that provides him with the dynamics we want. Touching with the right amount of mystery. Great family viewing but no thrills.
