I thought I was crazy
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought I was crazy because everyone I asked had never seen this movie. I contacted every television station until I found out who aired this movie. Having only seen it once I find it amazing how much of a impact it had on me. I like you all would love to own a copy of this movie and if anyone has a copy then PLEASE contact me at Swepsoni@AOL.com. If not I think we should all contact the T.V. station and request copies or at least for it to be aired again. This is definitely one to keep, cherish and share with those who missed this wonderful adaptation. It has been a pleasure reading all of your comments and knowing that I am not the only one who saw the movie.
