    Excellent! A real tear-jerker.

    Alan Rickman at his best! This shows that he more than just Severus Snape. Sigourney Weaver also turns in a nice performance.

    A reviewer

    A tragedy brings a stranger to a small Canadian town where he meets Sigourney Weaver's character -- who turns out to be a refreshingly, no, make that a painfully plain spoken autistic adult who has suffered a recent loss of a loved one. The stranger is forced to re-focus his reactions, and it is a delight to watch him and those around him struggle to adapt to a new and difficult situation. It pulls him and the rest of us out of our "comfort zones." The way the story develops around Sigourney's character's strange demands and habits are remarkable and endearing. I loved the capable way the stranger was forced to evolve -- as well as the way everyone did. This is a story that begins in tragedy, then takes a strange left turn into awareness, acceptance, forgiveness (the scene at the funeral with the truck driver is reminiscent of the last scene in Places in the Heart) and redemption. I loved it!
