Caroline recommended this movie a few months ago. I tucked that away, as it hadn't yet released in the U.S. When it was released here a few weeks ago, I didn't get around to going right away. It has had a lot of mixed reviews, and I was afraid it was going to get pulled from theaters if I waited too long, so I went by myself this afternoon. Thank goodness I went alone, because I would have embarrassed myself if I was with anyone. I cried like a baby.
I loved this movie. I feel sure it will be one of those that I will not be able to pass by when I see it on the satellite guide. The characters were lovable, and the actors playing them were great. It wasn't perfect...there were a few things that made me go, huh? But overall, it was a great message and love story...and the love between father and son was as compelling as the love between boy an girl.
