This one of the few films in my life that has caused me to cry because of a happy ending. Performances are wonderful across the board, and the subject matter is handled with honesty and poise. Extremely moving.

Good movie, and a good story to tell. Pretty effective movie most of the way. The ending however came just as the movie started to get good and rather abruptly and then it lingered. See if not just to hear the story.
