A magic story of love and redemption
I loved this movie. Clearly the director/writer gave inordinate thought and time to crafting a movie that not only moved me to tears at the time I saw it in Philly, but to put it in my memory. I have thought about it so many times and wondered, what would I do? I know what I would do--in a second, if I were ever given the choice---but what would John Nolte do? This is a movie for people who think and love. It was interesting to hear the discussion of the movie at the festival. People gave the theme and story real thought. Not many movies today ask us to think--and those that do have us thinking about war and violence, not about love and forgiveness. What a rare hour or two--the movie is challenging--thinking is even required to learn who the characters are--just like it takes time to learn who our friends really are and wonder who they might have been when they were young. With any luck, there are still plenty of people who want to think in the world--this movie needs to be seen. Whenever it comes out to the public at large, it will be a great success because people will tell their friends, and they will tell their friends, just like I have done.
