A RARE AND BEAUTIFUL PEARL KNOWN AS LIFE!
Verified purchase
Oh my! This is a lost Gem, a beautiful and rare Pearl that should be found by all. And it saddens me that not enough people will find this treasure and feel the happiness and sorrow of life lived with love, a gift of true LOVE expressed so passionately by Jonathan Patrick Moore. Speaking of Gems, I am now on a search for every movie Jonathan performs in as he has touched my heart like no other actor has.

I am not rating it on the emotional tug as most will.
Verified purchase
Yes it is an emotional movie with a semi "happy" ending, however totally unrealistic. A man who had just lost his wife a "few months ago" would not be in any position to take on the responsibility of a small girl. And might not even be wise, she needs a Mom, not a man who can be quite preoccupied with work, and no doubt would be again. Grief isn't over in two months believe me, You can be in a fog for a long time and having a child would just be a huge burden. It is a movie so they omit the daily grind of taking care of kids. School, meals, laundry, and the idea that he would step up and just do it all well, maybe But would have been best if they had found her two parents. After all he was a stranger. But they write these the way you want to see them end. But aside from this a man who just lost his wife wouldn't be able to even take care of himself, let alone a small child. It makes for a very nice movie and of course everyone is clapping because it is so sweet but the reality just isn't there. They could just as easily written the movie to allow her to live and both of them raise the little girl, that would have been a better story. As to the acting, his display of grief, hmmmm, a man who was supposed to be that much in love with his wife....well let me tell you, not even one tear, no real anger, nothing but a stony face. Let me tell you grief comes in waves and when it washes over you if you can be this stoic more power to you, but I felt it was a very poor portrayal.

Wow, very thought provoking.
Verified purchase
Very thought provoking. Subtle plot and plausible. Impressed with the video, photography, editing, screen play, sets, and the acting.

I liked the casting, but for the parents of Ava, who seemed to be too young to be her mother. Jonathan Moore, the lead male was great. Erin Bethea was great, but possibly a little too old to span her college years to late twenties in this. Her performance made for that and didn't distract from the story.

The performance by Terry O'Quinn also stood out. Well played and well written. He made a lot of sense given his daily grind. Eye opening.

Could've been a box office blockbuster!

Fantastic acting, storyline and camera work! Jonathon definitely took me by surprise, and I hope we get to see much more of him in the future - he touched my heart quite unexpectedly, and the inspirational story telling deserves all 5 stars! I haven't cried this many tears watching a movie in a very long time, and I thoroughly enjoyed being totally engaged from beginning to end.. I can't remember the last movie that touched me so deeply!

From the title I went in thinking the movie was based on one thing, but it was about something completely different. I thought the 'new life' would be the baby they was expecting at first. But then as the movie proceeded I realized that it was his life, about starting over, taking the good with the bad, going through the emotions and unexpectant of life while striving to make sense of things out of our control. With all of that said, I felt that the entire family was very blessed to have one another, to be supportive with one another. So many go through hard ships and have NO ONE. No one who truly love them, so never experience love at all. So, I didn't feel bad about him for this reason (because he had support). I would have been more sad if it was someone who didn't have any support at all.. with that said I thought the movie was very good and worth the watch. Cheers Everybody! Be well.

My husband & I watched this movie before watching: I Still Believe [the story about Jeremy Camp & his 1st wife], well I liked this better than I Still Believe, this was free to watch, we paid to watch the other movie.
In my humble opinion, this is a much better movie.
As we were watching this movie I didn't want to imagine my husband & I going through something like that. I kept thinking if someone has to go through that sickness let it be me, I don't want to see my husband suffer any illness, but I know it could happen to anyone. It also reminded me of the marriage vows.
