Great drama
16 April 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Based on a true story and what a story that is!

Sophia Loren stars as the mother in a family of four. One of her two sons are a drug addict -more and more Loren is drawn into a world completely different from what she known. Suddenly she is in the middle of the drug trade in New York. Loren acts beautifully and believable and together with a great supporting cast with actors as Hector Elizondo "Courage" comes out as a very realistic drama. Director Kagan handles the story with respect. As it is a true story it also should be this way, and in the end "Courage" is a great drama about courage, a drama about an ordinary family caught up in a grim reality.

Great acting, great story. Recommended!
