5.0 out of 5 stars a must have May 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
this is a movie that anyone can cherish. Bobby (rachel ward) has just found out that she has breast cancer. She keeps it all in and doesnt tell anyone. When she confides in her partner, Bailey (bernadette peters), Bailey is left with a large portion of the pain on her own shoulders with Bobby still pushing everyone away. In the middle of this they own a pub together. And most importantly one day when Bobbies getting Tests done in Dublin Bailey picks up a little package that she missed. Allen, her 11 year old nephew that she never knew she had. The little boy and bailey are instantly inseparable and Bailey is definatly coming off as the "can we keep it" type lol. With the persuasion of Bailey and her brother Bobby learns that with Allen in Bailey and her brother (why cant i remember his name?!) 's hearts its best for her just to sit down and shut up. Now this is no sob story. Granted it has its stressful moments, i mean the womans got breast cancer but its about living, not so much about dying. Granted its a bit about dying too. Allen is convinced that everyone who he has is going to die. Bobby sounds to have given up most hope of beating cancer. BUT Bailey and her brother are an absolute trip. Between david (UNCLE DAVID< THATS HIS NAME, baileys brother i mean)and bobbys obsession with old 70s and 80s songs and davids kareokie "monie monie" baileys melodrama (she tells bobby of her brothers death by saying "your always gone so i didnt know how to tell you that your brother and his wife were smashed to pieces by a really big truck", which in actuality isnt funny but who better than bernadette peters to put it that way....)..
This movie is precious, no other word can describe it and youll cry from it though perhaps not the kind of tears that youd expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing and wonderful surprise Jan. 23 2003
Format:VHS Tape
When I first saw this movie, I picked it partly because it sounded like one of those underdog types of movies, you know the one that is usually overlooked, and undervalued. And wow! It is a wonderful, moving and incredible. This is a great movie! Involved in the mire of running her own Tavern, Rachel Ward portarys Bobbie, a woman who is privately struggling with cancer unknown to her friends or lover, played by Bernadette Peters. A tragic and rather sudden accident leaves Bobbie the guardianship and responsibility of her young nephew. As time pases it proves to be in a interesting progression of growth on the part of all them, and a very warm and realistic understanding of love, acceptance and family. The acting performaces are absolutly brilliant and the chemistry between Peters, Ward and the boy are just facinating. Truely this movie is one that you should recommend to everyone you know and watch frequently!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and moving story. March 28 2004
By Kim F.
Format:VHS Tape
I didn't expect much at the beginning of this film but was surprised by the intensity and power of the story. The acting is great and the casting worked perfectly with the characters.
Bobbie (Rachel Ward) is struggling to deal with a recent diagnosis of breast cancer and who finds out that she's the guardian of her orphaned nephew. Bailey (Bernadette Peters) is her partner who does some major maturing as she copes with a new "son" and Bobbie's cancer. Jonathan Silverman is fantastic as Bailey's brother. Thomas Sangster is devastating as Alan, Bobbie's nephew.
The story is wonderful - neither promoting nor defending sexual preferences. It doesn't need to. When faced with tough situations we are all reduced to the same emotions and that's the focus of the film.

It's so funny and believable and sweet. The little boy is adorable, and Bernadette Peters and Rachel Ward are amazing. Almost didn't recognize Jonathan Silverman -- but he's great!

5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE PUT ON DVD!!!!! Oct. 29 2006
By J. Rempfer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
What a great film!!!! What a warm wonderful story. Two lesbian partners who run a pub in Ireland. Nice to see something set in present time in the Isles. Bernadette Peters as wonderful as always. At times humorous and sad but a very real story. Become parents to Rachel Ward's nephew. This film says alot for Gay and Lesbian parenting and extended families.

To the powers that be PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT THIS ON DVD.

This movie is precious, no other word can describe it and youll cry from it though perhaps not the kind of tears that youd expect. everyone of any age should see this movie. its about how you cant make it alone no matter how tough you think you are and that everyone needs love and that love is the one thing that can mend a wounded heart.
