Anything with Kris Kristofferson is a must see movie for me. Like a fine wine, he seems to get better with age. :-) Shh, don't tell my husband. :-) This heartwarming film is one that the entire family will enjoy. Even though you start to predict what will happen, it is nice to see this wholesome family movie play out. And, like all movies that deal with families in financial hardship or turmoil, you find yourself rooting for them and hoping that there is a happy ending. Don't worry, I will not ruin the ending for you. What I will say, however, is that the movie flows nicely and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Definitely a film worth picking up and adding to your family's collection, as it will be watched over and over again.
