Virginia Madsen is outstanding in this film in her role as Audie Farmer, the supportive wife and mother who loves with an unconditional love. When her husband Charlie hits a rough spot and displays some light violent behavior, she takes her kids to church and tells them they need to forgive him. This film has some great themes in it including pursuing one’s dream, yet not recklessly but with preparation. The family not only eats together, but as his father-in-law points out to Charlie, they “dream together.”
Unfortunately, the strong language throughout this film by almost every character except the mother and children prevents Dove from approving this film for family viewing.
