Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this flimsy drama, Ann-Margret plays an elderly widow with failing eyesight whose reclusive life is unwittingly transformed after a drifter and his ten-year-old daughter (Shailene Woodley) arrive on her doorstep. Trouble is, the veteran actress is much too glamorous and self-reliant from the outset to seem believable, even if she's agreeable to watch. The rest of the film is just as unconvincing, concentrating on emotion over action but mainly extracting nothing dramatic or particularly affecting from its cast of thinly drawn stereotypes. Only the sweetly developing relationship between Ann-Margret and the rootless Woodley feels genuine, finally providing enough heart to distract from the feature's chief attraction - its ravishing rural scenery.
