Just What The doctor Ordered
Verified purchase
During these unprecedented times of violence, chaos, shootings and sheer hatred, it is innovative to see a movie that is antithetical to the current anxiety provoking dilemma entitled LIFE. I loved this movie. It is about OPENING the chambers of our hearts when all hope is lost. It is about second chances. Luminous directing and cinematography. Randy Wayne is right on the mark when it comes to the five stages of grief and how he handles his character. The young lady, I believe her name is Mandahla Rose; I predict is going to be a superstar. I never caught her acting for a second. So empathetic and visceral. I recommend this movie to ANYONE who has ever loved and lost. It affected me personally and profoundly on many levels.

Mediocre
Verified purchase
I am not sure why this got such high ratings from some people. It was a mediocre "made for TV" quality move. It was free; so I am not really complaining. But it does not come anywhere near "big screen" quality, which is probably why I had never heard of it. I feel that the actress playing the nanny did a good job. Not too impressed with Andrea (mother). She seemed to be trying a bit too much. However, I was surprised to see that she was still acting. The main male character was originally supposed to be played by an actor that died from an overdose before the movie was made. I would have preferred to see how he did in the movie. He was the child actor in Shiloh. The current actor seemed a bit inexperienced. His expressions, at times, seemed awkward. Story line-well, it was a good story. However, the characters seemed a bit underdeveloped. The writer(s) would have been better off leaving out the beginning and start the movie where the wife is in the hospital and dies giving birth. That time spent at the beginning could have been used to better develop the actual story/characters.

A hard topic lovingly handled.
Verified purchase
Life can be an absolute suckfest no matter who you are. And that is how this movie starts. At least one review asked why the man was so wooden. I'll tell you that after my wife's stillbirth I was so ripped up inside I questioned if this was God's judgment of me. You shut down and part of you just dies inside. The movie handles a pair of deaths in a sensitive way and doesn't go into histrionics doing it. What the movie does is handle the recovery and the resurrection of love with gentle aplomb.

Babysitter becomes mom
Verified purchase
I wasn't real happy that the first person Luke hires that recently lost her own baby becomes his kids nanny. The description says stuff about faith and religion. Saw nothing of that in the movie and it's misleading to people who don't believe.
So I thought all in all it was a typical Hallmark type movie.

Beautiful Story
Verified purchase
The quality and the story was beautiful. I was able to fully enjoy this movie as it didn't involve foul language or sexual scenes. Each word was specifically constructed to create the tragic story that occurred to the doctor, the love of a parent, the family chaos that was mended, and the love that was developed in time. The directors and actors did a great job. Had to skip over some scenes as they were too emotional for me to watch - I am told I am too sentimental when it comes to movies. Definitely one of my favs.

Sad Story with a Sweet Ending
Verified purchase
This is definitely a girl's movie; if you're not a hopeless romantic, don't bother with it. Young OBGyn loses his wife and gains a baby daughter the same day one of his patients (who just happens to have a lovely Australian accent) loses her baby. Now, who couldn't predict the outcome, just given those facts? But, it was an enjoyable watch right to the end. Yeah, Jessee (the doc's baby girl) is born looking like a 4-month-old baby, and the doc who is head-over-heals in love with his wife, falls madly in love again before his daughter's first birthday, and his mother goes from being a completely HORRIBLE woman to the loving and lovable mom and mother-in-law of any man's dreams. Just overlook all that and enjoy the movie. You'll be left feeling good.

Excellent Movie!!
Verified purchase
Grabs your attention right from the start and keeps it through the entire movie. Great cast and well written story line. We rented it, but now wish we had bought it!
Great writing and directing from someone we've never heard of....I am sure we will see more from Director/Writer David McAbee.

Heartwarming but simplistic movie
Verified purchase
The storyline of this small-screen movie is heartwarming, and the two main characters are personable. However, there was not enough complexity in the character development or the dialogue - and the grandmother is written and directed as a poorly-nuanced Momzilla/ Wicked Witch. When the plot has the grandmother suddenly doing a 180-degree turn, that shift isn't well- explained in those scenes. The actress who played the grandmother did her best to make the extreme negativity of her character (and the sudden shift to positivity) believable. However, the simplistic writing made this an uphill battle for her.
Still, this movie has many redeeming qualities - especially its message that rebuilding one's life after a terrible loss is possible. Based on the movie's strengths, I give it four stars.
