Superstar!

Well done to Hallmark for this excellent movie. This is a 'love' story which at the same time examines forgiveness, betrayal, jealousy and ultimately taking the opportunities in life when love comes along. The male lead gives a fine performance yet the real star is Vanessa Redgrave; this actress has such depth and radiance that she dominates the movie with her enormous charisma, charm and screen presence. Without doubt a super star.

One of my most favorite Hallmark movies

The movie opens at the time Michael Keddington is caring for his mother but she eventually passes away, leaving Michael despondent. Taken cue from a doctor-friend's advice, he applies for work at the nursing home. There, he is assigned to take care of Esther and a fledging friendship arise that later becomes a strong bond between them until the end.

There were a lot of favorite parts from the movie but the ones that stood out were: Michael and Esther scenes. To me, those scenes touched me in various levels especially when Esther tells him that she believes in him during his court trial period (Michael felt all parts of his life was tumbling down ie: he broke up with his gf and his scholarship was retracted) when no one else seem to believe that he didn't kill Henry (one of the Nursing home's residents). Esther was also instrumental in leading Faye back to Michael's side. The movie also tells of forgiveness and healing.

masterfully sentimental

chad willet and vanessa redgrave are authentic and genuine in this masterpiece which i've seen thrice and gotten tears in my eyes every time - and i am not usually sentimental. the powerful emotions of trust, love, kindness, betrayal are skillfully portrayed and i will be watching this movie over and again over the years.
