Ashley Judd stars in this harmless piece of hokum, playing a self-described spinster living in a Virginia coal-mining town in the late 1970s. She runs the local pharmacy, provides maternal support to a teenage employee, and serves as director of her regional theater company. This paragon of the community would have a perfect life—if only her meddling cousins weren't trying to take over her property and she could find a man to love. Director Adriana Trigiani, adapting her best-selling novel, delivers the hackneyed material with good cheer, eliciting bright performances from an ensemble cast that includes Patrick Wilson, Jenna Elfman, Whoopi Goldberg, and Anthony LaPaglia.
