Beautiful
25 October 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a really beautiful movie about a home and school for young unwed mothers and a teacher who becomes too involved with her students. Sissy Spacek is my favorite actress, and here she stars as a young pregnant, determined to follow her heart and run her own life. She soon is confronted with a new teacher, portrayed by Shirley Jones, and totally disagrees with the lifestyle of the mature woman, stating her as being emotionally crippled. It´s very moving to witness the fights and discussions of the two strong characters, who, no matter how different their points of view, slowly grow to become friends. Although at times it is too obvious this was "only" made for TV, it still is a touching and sweet little film.
