What it's about:

Joey (Maxwell Perry Cotton) lives an idyllic life with his parents on the coast of Florida. His days are spent playing with his cousins and sailing with his dad. It's a perfect life until the day they receive a disturbing phone call: A stranger's decision could tear Joey away from the comfort and security of the only home he's ever known.

The story of one family determined to keep the son they love, and another determined to begin a new life, the life of which they've always dreamed. Joey's future rests in their hands and someone must make the bravest decision of their life.

What the critics thought:

"An on-the-nose though cathartically emotional melodrama giving Mira Sorvino her most substantial bigscreen role in years and featuring a head-turning performance by Barry Pepper."
- Robert Koehler, Variety


"Like Dandelion Dust is a well-acted, earnest film about adoptive parents' worst nightmare, dealing sympathetically with all parties in a lose-lose situation."
- Michael Ordoña, Los Angeles Times


"Familiar adoption drama is enhanced by complex characters and credible situations."
- Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

I loved the book and I'm pretty sure the movie will be just as good!
