Although this film deals with some serious issues, it does so in a respectable manner and the people at the Hallmark Channel should be praised for doing a movie on Alzheimers, which is not something which receives much dramatic attention.
The movie has very mild language and although it deals with suicide and child molestation, the scenes are handled delicately and there is more dialog than there are actual scenes concerning these issues. The redemptive story of the daughter who held a grudge but learns there are more layers to peel regarding her father, is a story which is honorably told. Due to thematic issues, we approve this film for ages twelve and above and we recommend it and award it five doves. The acting, story, and direction are all top notch in this television special. It’s a movie that gets to the heart of family relationships and what families are all about.
