"Patience." "Persistence." We should ALL remember that good advice that Bill Porter's mother gave him often. Bill's struggle was with Cerebral Palsy which made him "walk like a drunken sailor" (his words) and slurred his speech. He wanted to be a salesman like his father, and against all odds, and with patience and persistence, he became one at Watkins. This is a true story of a man who became interwoven into his customer's lives and hearts...and as soon as you watch this movie, he'll touch your heart as well. At one point, he could no longer physically make deliveries to customers and hired Shelly (played cheerfully and with none of the pity that Bill could not stand by Kyra Sedgewick). Helen Mirren is amazing as Bill's mom.
SEE THIS MOVIE! This is one of William H. Macy's best performances.
