Kenneth Branagh stars as Peter McGowan, a critically acclaimed playwright whose last few works haven't done well. His life is made even more difficult by trying to fix his latest production, a wife who desperately wants kids (Robin Wright Penn), and a neighbor's barking dog that keeps him up at night.

He needs a believable child character for his latest work and he realizes he knows nothing about kids. He decides to use his new next door neighbor's daughter Amy as a role model. As he gets to know her better, their lives become increasingly intertwined.

Reviews of this film have been somewhat critical of the "feel good" parts of the film. They say that the sweetness takes too much away from the film and we don't get enough character development. This film has been shown on cable so you may be able to catch it even if you don't have an art house in your neighborhood. (Marty Doskins/BOP)
