A gifted 14-year-old junior at the University of Washington replies to an ad of a 19-year-old freshman to be her maths tutor, paving the way for a friendship and a silent first crush. Will the kind genius master the lessons of the heart?
Melissa Sue Anderson,
Inspired by a Norman Rockwell painting, this 1950s coming of age drama centers on a young man leaving home to attend college, where he will learn the lessons in becoming a man. While his family must deal with a life threatening illness.
Eva Marie Saint,
Norman is a curmudgeon with an estranged relationship with his daughter Chelsea. At Golden Pond, he and his wife nevertheless agree to care for Billy, the son of Chelsea's new boyfriend, and a most unexpected relationship blooms.
A nice gentle look at reunion of mother and child separated at birth.
An adoptee finds her mother and moves in with her. They both work out some of the problems caused by adoption in their lives. The movie touched on some of the ways adoption complicates peoples lives, but it was very nice very calm, very gentle. I enjoyed watching it, but it does not accurately portray the angst and pain I see in real life reunions, as necessary as they are. It was a pleasant movie.
