This movie to be added to my holiday "must see" list
I saw this movie shortly before Christmas, and am planning to see it again if it is provided next season. It is unfortunate that people these days lack the patience to study characters, absorb the flow of a story. The classics of Shakespeare, Dickens, Bronte', even Mark Twain would no doubt cause great boredom and yawning. This story was 'natural' drama, paced just fine, illustrating the regrets of a father, learning to trust and love, followed by redemption. Acting was just fine, and I was impressed with Ruben's character. The dialogue kept it lively, was without any profanity, or nudity as I recall. It was a decent movie for a family, teen and older. Give it a try.
