This movie was WONDERFUL!
14 February 2004 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie as an 11 year old. And I absolutely loved it! It's one of those movies that you just can't forget. I saw it again on cable late one night last year but it was too late to tape it. So I'm thinking seriously of buying the tape. Deborah Raffin did a fabulous job as the compassionate caretaker Lena Canada. Diane Lane also did an excellent job playing Karen,the handicapped teenager. If you have a chance & it's in a videotape store, see it!
