"Our Very Own," the story of a girl on her eighteenth birthday whose world is shattered when she learns she's adopted, is an excellent and most underrated film. In addition to the intense drama, it's also a typical look at the American Family in 1949 just as television is entering most American homes at that time. The cast is excellent and features a young Natalie Wood as Gail Macualey's youngest sister. It was recently released on home video for the first time and it's a treasure to own.
