Gentle sentiment turns The Locket into an old-fashioned weeper for anyone who loved Driving Miss Daisy. It's not nearly as effective as that 1989 Oscar®-winner, but this Hallmark Hall of Fame production--adapted from the novel by Richard Paul Evans--has similar charms of its own, and its warm-hearted themes of love and compassion offer a welcomed alternative to network sex and violence. After caring for his terminally ill mother, an aspiring medical student named Michael (Chad Willett) works at a nursing home, where an elderly resident (Vanessa Redgrave) teaches him valuable lessons using her own past--and a long-lost love--to illustrate the importance of second chances. Their friendship, and an unexpected court trial, encourages Michael to reconcile with his estranged father (Terry O'Quinn), with the support of his loving fiancée (Marguerite Moreau). No surprises here, but have your Kleenex handy just in case. --Jeff Shannon

The story is about relationships, love, forgiveness, vindication and second chances. Sensitivity to issues that many of us deal with undergirds this movie, as does the outstanding performance by Vanessa Redgrave. By daring to confront emotional pain, this movie leads us to an uplifting, hopeful ending. No violence. No profanity. No sex. A wonderful, encouraging story. I recommend it to families with teens.
It was a love story she told about her life I really enjoyed the movie She is a terrific actress and they could not have chosen a better actress for this role
