    Saw the movie on Hallmark

    This story will surely move your heartstrings. As an older genteleman,
    as I am an older woman, Jack Lemmon did not want to give up his belongings after his wife passed away. So he took the opportunity to hitchhike 'cross country' keeping a young woman company. This movie was an eye-opener for me. Having seen the movie, I'll be sure to love the book. However, if I can purchase the movie, I'll do that so that my children can 'borrow' it. The time just flew by while watching it; I didn't want the film to be overwith. I tried to give it five stars, but the fifth star would not stay highlighted.
