Review: I like this movie. The idea that family is not always a “Leave it to Beaver” situation makes this a feel good movie with drama. Although loose in story structure, the point is made. The best thing about it is I can watch it with my children without any embarrassment. We can talk about decisions and consequences without sex, violence and more violence. It is nice seeing someone willing to put time and energy into a movie that is truly PG/PG13… in this day and age it would probably almost qualify as a G! The actors came across as people who were being watched. Insecure at times, as they should be in a real life situation. I recommend that this film be added to the family library since it can be watched multiple times and still not get boring.
