Academy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee William Hurt ("Syriana," "The Village") stars in this touching story about a lonely, unmarried mail clerk who must prove that he is emotionally qualified to love and nurture a troubled young boy before he is allowed to adopt him. His struggle to win the boy over demonstrates that simply by being present and caring, he is a better parent than the boy's own absent father, who was sent to prison not long after the boy's mother died. Also starring Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner John Hurt ("Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," "The Skeleton Key"), and directed by Academy Award-winner Chris Menges ("The Mission," "The Killing Fields"). The Hollywood Reporter calls this "an entirely first-rate drama... a quietly powerful film," and The Los Angeles Times says it is "Splendid. Perfect. Richly realized."
