4 May 2005 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This movie had to be one of the best tear-jerker's I have ever seen. I watched it over ten years ago and have not been able to get it out of my mind since. I have also not been able to find it, but then I was looking for the name "Baby Brian". I will most definitely try to find a copy to keep, and so that I can watch it over again. It is heartwarming, sad, emotional and will most definitely touch something in all who have ever loved anyone. I know, with my mum now battling with cancer, it will touch even deeper. It shows the true value of a mothers love, and Mary Stuart Masterson become one of my favorite actresses because of this movie. I am just surprised I never see this movie around anymore, and pray I can go out and get myself a copy now that I have the correct title. Trust me, its a must-see even for the most soft at heart. Just have a box of tissues because you will not just tear will literally sob!!!
