The film, unfortunately, is poorly acted and offers Hallmark Channel-level craftsmanship.

It succeeds in walking the tonal high beam without falling into soul-destroying bleakness on one side or a saccharinely fake happy ending on the other. That’s no mean feat.

Roth wisely manages to avoid excess mawkishness and keeps the action moving apace.
