I was in this movie
16 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in this movie I was 9 years old and played an extra with a 3 second speaking role.My aunt was mayor of the town this movie was filmed in Swansea South Carolina and I had the best time being around all of it and seeing it made.I was a wonderful movie.I believe the story and all the surroundings make it a truly enjoyable film for everyone to see.It is a story that anyone can believe it is very real and wonderfully written.The actors and actresses in the movie were fun to work with and a joy to watch.The director and producers I thought did a fantastic job and the scenery was great.It is a very emotional film.
