"A warm, winning film with pitch-perfect performances!"
Leonard Maltin, Entertainment Tonight.
This touching and humorous movie has earned the raves of critics and won the hearts of audiences everywhere.
To spare the feelings of her fatherless boy, Lizzie (Emily Mortimer, Disney's The Kid) secretly authors letters from his "father" that detail seafaring adventures from around the world.
But she cannot maintain this illusion forever. Torn between exposing the truth and protecting her son, Lizzie gets more than anyone bargained for when she hires a handsome stranger (Gerard Butler, The Phantom of the Opera, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) to play the role of a lifetime.
Winner at both the Heartland Film Festival and the Seattle International Film Festival, this entertaining motion picture is sure to touch your heart. -- (C) Miramax Films, 2004, UK.
