This is a slow moving story with predictable results. Rachel Evan Wood and Michael Douglas do a good job of handeling their roles. The story line is predictable and plodding yet developes the bond between the father and daughter in a touching way. To me the pay off is the ending scene. If you have been paying attention it is a touching way to end. Overall I liked the movie very much. Anyone
