The Ultimate Gift

DH and I went to see 'The Ultimate Gift' movie over the weekend. It was wonderful - we both thought it was very inspiring and beautifully done! DH said as we walked out "That's one we HAVE to have on DVD when it comes out."

Synopsis:
"When his wealthy grandfather dies, trust fund baby Jason Stevens anticipates a big inheritance. Instead, his grandfather has devised a crash course on life with twelve tasks – or “gifts” – designed to challenge Jason in improbable ways, sending him on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to determine what is most important in life: money or happiness."

The cast includes Abigail Breslin - the young lady nominated for an Academy Award for 'Little Miss Sunshine' - terrific! Other cast members are James Garner, Bill Combs, Brian Dennehy, Lee Merriweather, Ali Hillis and Drew Fuller...all excellent choices for the parts.

But...if you go, take a box of tissues - one just won't do! It's at least a 5 hanky tear-jerker.
(o jeeze..I just went and looked at the movie trailer again and I have to find another hanky...)

I hope it shows up at our town soon. I've been reading all the info I could about it and I love James Garner. I like that someone is doing a positive, decent show in the midst of all the yuck I see advertised. I also want to see Amazing Grace.
