Uplifting content and some striking performances
20 May 2002 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

The film is very Christian in spirit without mentioning religion. Doing good without seeking gain, is what the film advocates as it traces a true life story.

It has striking performances by an actress named Brooke Johnson who plays Sophie's mother and CCH Pounder who plays Lilly Keyes. It is interesting that Atom Egoyan picked up Brooke Johnson for his film "A sweet hereafter". She has truly a great potential as an actress.

The other fascinating bit in the film was the choice of background music. The low key direction was effective but never outstanding.

All in all an above average film--worth investing your time.
