IMDb Comment

I didn't know what to expect when I started watching, but I was drawn in very quickly. Set in Santa Fe - brilliant idea - and a typical gay couple behaviour, not trying to be nice, just themselves, getting a 12-year-old child by surprised. Others said it was a comedy, that they have laughed... but I did not laugh, just smiled from time to time, and it was good enough. The story and acting are good, believable, and it kept me interested throughout. In a time of so many bad movies produced, this film is a little jem of rationality and good sense. Really liked it, and I hope you will too.

Trivia

The film derives its from director Andrew Fleming's life, where he was in a 23-year relationship with a man who had a son from a previous marriage and they all lived together.
