PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
After having responded to her son's numerous letters in the guise of his father, a woman hires a stranger to pose as his dad when meeting him.
Jack McElhone (Frankie) is not deaf but worked with a speech coach so that his one spoken line would sound correct.
I had a good time tonight.
The Stranger: Don't sound so surprised.
The Stranger: He's got your eyes. They... pull you right in.
Lizzie: Don't know what to say to that
The Stranger: You don't have to say anything.
Lizzie: You don't have to say nice things to me. I'm not paying you for that.
The Stranger: So why don't you...
When Lizzie is climbing up the hill to the overlook, her knees are wet before she kneels on the grass.
