    I was vewry pleased at the story line and the acting. I thought it would be a story about Lyme desease but instead it was a window into what happens when a father forgets what it realy means to be a father. Alic Baldwin is perfect in character and so is Emma Roberts. SHe shows that she has only grown with the movies she has made. She is totaly in character and quite believable. SHe is going places. Movie is a must see.
