Gideon Dobbs ( Christopher Lambert ) plays a young, simple-minded man who checks into a retirement home where he finds the residents have lost their lust for life. Through his innocence, he changes their lives and teaches them that each day is a precious gift.
This movie has many legendary actors in it. Almost all of these actors have at least an Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe or a Tony Award. Being on set every day with all of these great actors was really a great experience for me. These actors come from stage, TV, and film. They have done it all. Even someone like Charleton Heston had an easy sense of humor on set. He talked to everybody on set. And then you have actors like Carroll O’Connor, Shirley Jones, Mike Connors, Barbara Bain and Mykelti Williamson.
