Earl makes the trip, initially receiving a cold welcome from Ray and Ray's son, Virgil. His birth mother's sister, Aunt T., an aged and blind matriarch, takes Earl in tow and insists that the family open up to him.

This is a very good movie. It shows that sometimes things aren't always how you want them to be. It also shows that life can surprise at any moment. I love how Earl tells the boy that happiness is having something to live for. Which i find to be very true. I cant wait to share this movie with my family!

5/5 EXCELLENT This is one of the best dramas I've seen to date. This movie was very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It told such a warm heartfelt story and everyone put on a good performance.
