A man and a woman go out on a "big" third date. He's ashamed to admit he just lost his job, and she's afraid he'll run away if he finds out that she has a kid. Small lies lead to bigger ones and the night gets crazy very soon.
Rendered a quadriplegic since a child from a near-fatal neck injury, a young girl fights against all odds to succeed in life from grade school to her acceptance into college under the assistance of her loyal and dedicated mother.
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio,
I can't think of anything I didn't like about this movie. Annette O'Toole was superb in both her acting and singing, and I feel she "did Tammy Wynette proud". I always enjoy learning more about the private lives of my favorite singers, and it's important that the details be as close to real life as possible when they are depicted in a movie. From what I've learned, this movie did just that. The details of her life and career, from being a hairdresser to her introduction on the stage next to George Jones, who later became her husband, was inspirational. I found it to be uplifting in that, even though in a bad marriage, and with 3 children, she had the determination to make a better life for her family. Her marriage to George was later dissolved, but country music fans continue to see them as one of the great loves never to be forgotten, and this particular movie captures the essence of that love, and why we love them so much. I am a fan of both Annette and Tammy. Unfortunately, we won't be seeing any more of Tammy, but I do look forward to more Annette movies and appearances...she's wonderful!
