(out of 5)


Touching drama firmly addresses sensitive issues without pretending to have easy solutions for them.  and  play a happily married couple whose inability to have children naturally has led them to the route of adoption. They find an unwed, pregnant teenager () who chooses them to be the parents of her as-yet unborn child. The couple meet with the young woman and try to get to know her, in the meantime preparing for their new life as parents. When the baby is actually born, however, things start to change. Intelligent writing and direction make for a very thought-provoking fim that has a satisfying ending that is achieved without emotional manipulation or any obvious audience-pleasing goals in mind. Apart from that, it’s nice to see Woods playing someone other than a loose cannon character who chews up scenery for a living (though he’s still very good at that).
