    Curtis MorganMiami Herald

    Annie DeSalvo, a first-time director and screenwriter, can't escape the made-for-TV feel but does manage to give her cast, mostly once-big names fallen from grace and popularity, flashes of humanity between lessons about various saints and sermons disguised as dialogue.

    The movie is as schmaltzy as I'd feared, and yet De Salvo does elicit some nice performances from her ensemble cast. show more
