Pros: interesting, charming, well-acted, simple     Cons: drags a little in a few places     The Bottom Line: I was not expecting to like this movie, but was pleasantly surprised- it was like curling up by a warm fire with a favorite book. I really enjoyed this.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot.
