A lovely film that appears to have been quite overlooked. I had never heard of it before, but having just recently discovered it, this warm and funny movie is a diamond in the rough. The story is familiar, but well done, with beautiful location scenes and memorable characters. Karen Allen is radiant in this, and the film is worth watching even if only for her enjoyable romantic comedy turn. Bryan Brown is convincing as a the con man who just might be persuaded to change his stripes, and has great chemistry with both Allen and young Justin Rosniak, playing her son. Themes of love, redemption and family all factor into the story, making it suitable for family viewing. An enjoyable, if oft-overlooked film.
A sweet-talking con man starts to turn his life around when he falls in love in this family oriented comedy.
