Based on a true story, this is a slice of life in the life of an elderly couple. James Cromwell is mesmerizing in his performance. Not to be missed.

Nice story that has the feel of a Hallmark channel movie except for the terrific performances of the leads(Cromwell in particular).

James Cromwell is amazing in this. It's got a sort of southern gothic feel to it. Craig Morrison is adamantly defending his right to do what he wishes with the land that has belonged to him for decades. He's not quite willing to part with his dignity as he enters the final stages of his life, much to the chagrin of the powers that be.

Wooooow! This one will break your heart in the kindest possible way. Many of you will likely see shades of your parents or grandparents, which makes it all the more endearing, and heartbreaking. The ending is NOT sad, I promise. Highly recommend. (On Netflix now.)

James Cromwell bowled us over when he shot Kevin Spacey in LAConfidential and he doesn't get a lot of leading roles. In this movie, he shines as the husband of Geneviève Bujold. The supporting cast is excellent. A favorite of mine is Campbell Scott as the lawyer.

This movie is a political statement against the role of Government. They throw in some rant against universal health insurance while they are at it.

This is a very small film but it is well done. It is based on a true story and it is acted beautifully. It does have it's slow parts, but otherwise it is decent.

Pretty good love story about growing old but it's a bit more than that. It's a tale of how society has changed and a question of if all the changes are for the better.

Cromwell's character lives on a 2,000 acre farm with his wife, who is beginning to loser her memory and physical abilities. In an effort to keep that marriage going, he decides to build a small home on the property. He encounters problem after problem when dealing with government regulations. It becomes a question of how all the micromanaging can affect us. Even when he proves his work's value, it's still not good enough for the government. How can that be?

So finally, it's a movie about principle. What do you do when you know you're right and doing something for the right reasons. It's slow and the characters never to a terrible lot, but it's just a nice drama.

Moving. Incredible. Poignant. Don't miss this drama of aging and love as well as the accurate reflection of the absurdity of government regulation. All wrapped up in a tight package.
½ December 17, 2014
In essence, it's a TV movie with all the simplifications that suggests. But it's a TV movie raised to something more by Cromwell and Bujold.

The performances of Cromwell and Bujold are Oscar worthy. Superb. That's all.

This movie brought the feels. James Cromwell plays an elderly man who battles the government to build a home for his wife with Alzheimer's and make her as happy as possible. Great acting and an excellent (true) story. Well worth a watch on Netflix.

You have to really like down home family oriented movies for this one....but i do...so it was right up my alley....still its kind of one of those "once is enough" type movies.

A beautiful movie about the care and love of 2 elderly couples interwined with a story of old man fighting against the system to build a suitable house for his wife. A must watch.

A strong performance from James Cromwell in a subtle film that tells a simple story about aging and the difficulties of losing control over ones life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful movie. This was a movie with an actual story with believable characters portrayed so excellently by the lead actors.
Hollywood should make more of these type of movies instead of some of the crap they crank out. Bravo!
