  1. Washington brings it off with an unforced and well-earned emotional wallop, and whose strong hand, keen eye, sweet spirit and good taste are reflected in almost every scene.
  2. Has warmth and integrity, but it lacks the urgency of a story that had to be told.

    But there's a vaguely self-congratulatory tone to the screenplay that's a bit off-putting.
