actor: Victor Garber

Take Me Home

March 9, 2012
This movie has some funny relatable moments and it's too bad that strong language prevents us from awarding the film our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. The movie is about crossing someone's path and realizing only later that fate threw your destinies together. Claire knows her husband has been [...]

While the trajectory of the film could bog down in legalese, the script from Mario Correa and Matthew Michael Carnahan [...]
