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!
