If you are expecting a complicated plot with lots of drama, tension, and cynicism then this movie is not for you. If you want an escape to a simple wholesome innocent time and place with a gentle heartfelt comedic love story then I would wholeheartedly recommend this one.
Plus as a huge Shatner fan it is so endearing to see him staring in a movie like this playing the lonely everyman or at least everyman at that age. He was in his late 80's at the time of the filming and looks and acts amazing. While I appreciate all his work over the years it makes me sad he did not star in more films. Has a lot more range and talent in my opinion then he is given credit for.
As of this writing there is a huge disparity in opinions. Rotten Tomatoes has the critics score of 18% fresh and audience a whopping 95% The reviews from the haters are the kind of negativity and cynicism I look to escape to in a movie like this and loved every minute of it!
Thank you to Shatner and all the makers of this great movie. Really helped to cheer me up and was an especially nice escape during such hard times!
