Peter Falk can’t get enough of stealing scenes in this touching family drama, as a Polish American baker who raises his grandson after the boy loses both parents. Naturally, they butt heads when the boy grows up (and becomes ) and decides to have his own personality. Lots of wonderful, genuine family moments, plus a warmhearted performance by Julianne Moore as Sweeney’s loving wife. It’s a nice, quiet movie that suits a nice, quiet evening.
