A warm and hopeful coming-of-middle-age tale.
To put it simply — and, yes, gratefully — 'Phoenix, Oregon' is the sort of movie a lot of us need right now.
An ode to small-town joys.
...definitely a prime contender for the feel-good movie of the year.
The writing's clever, the characters mostly adorable and the result – amiable entertainment.
