  1. One of the best in Mr. Poitiers film credits. He has many great films under his belt, but to me this is his sweetest and most captivating roles. I rarely cry at movies, but the ending on this film it made me cry like a kid wanting her way lol. This is a great little gem, must watch film, it truly makes you feel warm and giddy and close to the characters. One of the few films where every character really does matter. OK. Enough already. Watch it. You’ll like it.

    • I always thought this movie was a lot like Clint Eastwoods 2 mules for Sister Sarah which I also really liked. It is a genuinely sweet story.
