Its well acted, competently shot, the score is nice and it’s good nature and that’s why i really enjoyed watching the movie . However, the story never really gets going. There is no sense of conflict. You get the feeling that it is supposed to be a heart felt story, but it doesn’t go for it. It never pulls at your heart strings or the fact that you can free download the movie. Harold Perrineau’s ghost character is wasted potential, as he has nothing to do in the film but wander the small town looking to return home. You would think he is supposed to give life lessons and share wisdom to the two main stars, especially William Fitchner’s character given that his marriage needs some work. The film creates small problems here and there but resolves them with such ease you wonder why it bothers to tell the story. It’s not realistic. Fitchner is a talented actor, I can’t say the same for him being a writer. The film has good intentions but loses the message it’s trying to convey. It’s an interesting idea for a movie had it been thought through a bit more. Not too bad for William Fitchner’s directorial debut but I wish it had left more of an impact.
Stars : William Fichtner, Robin Weigert, Kim Coates
