I am in my sixties and this is one of the most heartwarming and profoundly truthful movies I have ever viewed. It's warm, funny and often crushing view about the reality of life's struggles and the way each of them survived for the better, or worse, is so profound! I highly recommend it. You can watch it over and over and still gain a truth and insight about life.

I watched this movie being made in my home town. It was a pleasure to see being made and to see in the theater.
