Product Description

Venessa Redgrave, Chad Willett. A young man learns lessons of love through the stories of an older woman who was once in his situation in this remarkable tale. 2003/color/98 min/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

Gentle sentiment turns The Locket into an old-fashioned weeper for anyone who loved Driving Miss Daisy. It's not nearly as effective as that 1989 Oscar®-winner, but this Hallmark Hall of Fame production--adapted from the novel by Richard Paul Evans--has similar charms of its own, and its warm-hearted themes of love and compassion offer a welcomed alternative to network sex and violence. After caring for his terminally ill mother, an aspiring medical student named Michael (Chad Willett) works at a nursing home, where an elderly resident (Vanessa Redgrave) teaches him valuable lessons using her own past--and a long-lost love--to illustrate the importance of second chances. Their friendship, and an unexpected court trial, encourages Michael to reconcile with his estranged father (Terry O'Quinn), with the support of his loving fiancée (Marguerite Moreau). No surprises here, but have your Kleenex handy just in case. --Jeff Shannon

After reading the Locket, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out it had been made into a movie. The story is about a young man, Michael, who after the death of his mother, gets a job at a nursing home and befriends an elderly woman Ester who changes his life for the better and shows him what faith and forgivenss are all about. MIchael has to go through many trials in his young life, but decides to become better, not bitter from them. The book is definitely better, so I would recommend reading it before watching the movie. I also recommend reading the sequel, the Carousel. The movie unfortunately doesn't have nearly all the details and a few minor changes were made.( For instance in the movie Michael's father is alive and he and Michael become friends, but in the book he dies.) I thought the director picked the perfect actors for the role. I cannot imagine someone other than the talented Vanessa Redgrave playing the part of Ester, nor anyone playing the part of sensitive, honest Michael other than the hot Chad Willet.

This movie, based on Richard Paul Evans' novel, pleasantly exceeded my expectations. Vanessa Redgrave's performance captured the essence of Esther Huish's character. What a heartwarming story line that reminds us of power of love but also the unfortunate dark sides of humanity. I would highly recommend this movie for any Richard Paul Evans fans or Hallmark Hall of Fame movie collectors. I am glad this is movie can be purchased, as I have been searching for it ever since seeing it on television.

If you like Richard Paul Evans you won't want to miss this movie, but fair warning keep the hankie handy. This movie stars Vanessa Redgrave as a women in a nursing home who had a deep love once in her life. A young man comes to work in the home, and the two hit it off and become friends and help each other with their "lost" dreams. It is a very moving story, and has much sadness included, but don't worry the ending is a happy one, and Vanessa's characters final wish is carried out for her by her loving friend.

This is a really good Hallmark movie if a little sappy at times. I think Vanessa Redgrave- who is always phenomenal- as Esther Huish was a good casting choice. The best parts in the movie are scenes with her and Chad Willet and how she teaches him about love, forgiveness, and never giving up hope. Some of the scenes are a little corny but the movie really speaks volumes about life's important things. It is interesting to see how Chad Willet's character Michael evolves through the movie into someone who can love and be loved and isn't burdened by resentment. Also, I really liked how Ester and Michael's friendship evolves- it doesn't happen all at once which I think is realistic. So overall, a really great feel good movie.

This is another keeper in my Hallmark collection. A great storyline with compassionate characters you can really care about. Great acting by all involved and in my opinion, you will not be disappointed with any aspect of this DVD. Family-friendly and no language or anything to be concerned with, just a good moral lesson and great perspective of honor.

I remember seeing this movie when Hallmark first aired it and was pleased to get a copy of my own. My grandson and I watched it recently, appreciating the tenderness shown by the main character to those he cared for at the nursing facility. At the same time, the story line touched on some of the difficulties in life and how our own attitudes affect our well-being. I enjoyed Vanessa's performance as Esther.

This movie is another favorite and although I have seen it many times on Hallmark channel, I purchased it for my Aunt's Birthday and she was so tickled that she finally got to see what I had been talking about. It's a movie that warms the heart and it a great family movie. The Locket, The Christmas Box and Timepiece are all wonderful movies by the same Richard Paul Evans and they are a must for all my loved ones. Great pricing on this one as I had been wanting one for me and one for her so couldnt' be happier with this purchase. Great shipping time and the movie plays great. Looking forward to more of these kinds of movies that the whole family can watch together.

This was my 1st RPE (Richard Paul Evans) book and I've been hooked ever since! It's a beautiful movie of love and betrayal. It's a Hallmark movie so you know it'll be a tear-jerker! Have plenty of tissue on hand. This is the 1st book in a trilogy. I know you'll love it like I do!The Locket Gold Crown Collector's Edition (Hallmark Hall of Fame) 2002
