    Nothing can go wrong when it has Vanessa Redgrave. Combine that with Mary McDonnell and a whole bunch of old people in the nursing home, it's my kind of movie 101% -- A tear-jerker no less, it isn't totally unrealistic either. I didn't see one of the twists coming, so I was quite surprised. I know most people disapprove of Hallmark movies but this really is a good one with a strong cast.

    Ordinary drama is made into a superior one whenever Vanessa Redgrave is on screen. The woman is a marvel of nuance making the smallest gesture speak volumes. She easily outclasses anyone in any film that is lucky enough to have her in its cast. That being said the rest of the cast in this film give competent performances although the picture really isn't anything special.

    The story and plot is boring,i think the movie goes in too many different directions and it would of been better if they had just stuck to the one simple storyline of the guy befriending the old lady. I tried to warm to the characters but they were so wooden that it didnt happen.

    This is one of those movies I find and always ask what's this, pop it in the machine, and am pleasantly surprised. It's such a sweet story, and it's nice not to have language, violence, and sex scenes.
