nice
15 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

warm atmosphere. small town. the shadow of past as tool for consolidate the links who defines a family. a Hallmark movie genre, nice to lovely, comfortable, well acting and far to surprise. moral lesson about image and errors - not too serious -, teenagers and the taste of paste memories, Eric Close as the perfect choice for the good guy who has a gray side and few scenes who reminds aspects from every day ordinary life , source to love the film and appreciate the script who not gives revelations but has the role of soup for soul. a film from many others of same genre. and that is the good point. for expectation of viewer. for a comfortable afternoon.
