Where There's A Will... ****
21 March 2008 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

Excellent film starring Marion Ross, as an ailing grandmother, and the grandson she finds, played quite well by Frank Whaley.

Whaley appears to be a grandson on the way to doing no good. Owing money to a mobster, he flees to Texas when he discovers that he has a grandmother.

The product from a young relationship, his mother had died at age 5 and the father abandoned him 10 years later.

Whaley comes to Texas with the idea of taking as much as he can from the old woman to pay off his debt and get even more. He immediately plans to have her declared incompetent and put away so that he can get everything quickly.

This is the story of a warm relationship developing from grandson to grandmother. The grandson's presence gives new meaning to the grandmother who fixes herself up and is about to marry again only to have death intervene.

The performances are excellent, especially that of Marion Ross as the grandmother. At the beginning of the film, she comes across as a typical rural grandma, but her faith is restored by her grandson, who becomes a man.

The end will tug at your heart but you will know that you have seen something special.
