Josef Mengele, forced Edie to dance for his amusement—and her survival. He rewarded her with a loaf of bread that she shared with her fellow prisoners—an act of generosity that would later save her life.
She raised a family, studied and practiced psychology, and refused to speak about her experiences during the war. Not Hitler. Not Josef Mengele.

Today, at ninety years old, Edie is a renowned psychologist and speaker who specializes in treating patients suffering from traumatic stress disorders. So far, so Sparks. At times, their interplay resembles a pair of improv actors stuck in a pickle, volleying the same lines back and forth waiting for the other to give them something to work with, and one waits impatiently for a line of any consequence to emerge. Or, for that matter, an actual conflict to arise.
Ryan and Monica finally do arrive back on the scene, but the romantic quadrangle is resolved with comical speed. Midway through, Travis spots his father Tom Wilkinson, deserving of much, much better in the backroom of the pet clinic, discreetly replacing a dead lizard with another, identical-looking live one. Travis calls him out on it, at which point his father offers him a choice: Would he rather walk out into the waiting room and explain to a sweet year-old girl that her beloved pet reptile has bought the farm? Or would he rather err on the side of well-meaning dishonesty, and emerge heroically with the little lizard appearing to have made a miraculous recovery?
Travis opts for the latter.
But when that same principle is applied to storytelling, as it very much is here, the narrative descends into the most manipulative variety of kitsch. Running time: MIN.
And Tom Wilkinson as Shep, Travis' doctor father. This is very enjoyable and yet, we know an accident will happen later on and someone has to make a choice and everything is intensified. Keep a box of Kleenex handy as you are going to need it.
And Ryan does punch Travis. Sex: Yes, but nothing graphic. Nudity: No.
