Don't listen to a single review from the "critics" regarding the content, the acting, or anything else for that matter. Nowdays, if a film isn't filled with horror, action, blood, or sex; then it's called "flat" and a smattering of other unflattering words to describe why they think you souldn't even bother to see it. Forget everything they say. This movie is warm, wonderful, filled with heart touching - and yes, at times heart-wrenching - scenes; but isn't that what's called life and therefore constitutes realistic content? I just can't say enough good things about this film, and I'm proud of all the actors that thought it worth their while to make such an awesome movie that stirs the heart. Uplifting and poignant, this film inspires us to be better ourselves and invest in the lives of those around us. A must-see and a good one to own.
