Saw this at a private screening in NYC.

A Korean War vet comes to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter -- yes, there are four main characters, not two per the present IMDb site -- and manages to forge a surprisingly (because non-Hollywood) strong bond with the young soccer- playing girl.

The script avoids stereotypical goings-on; everything seems pretty darn real and nicely balanced. No mushy gushy, no 100% cures, no neatly tied ends. Just a really interesting shift and flow among the relationships, some unexpected but believable twists and turns.

The husband and wife each get their moments two, and the relationship between them -- and between them and the older/younger generation -- is partly what gives this film such a nice ensemble feeling.

The rest of the cast includes other vets, who we meet in a wonderful little scene at their 'club'.
