A truly moving picture
27 May 2001 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This movie was very inspirational, sad, and moving. It was amazing to watch someone so limited physically effect the lives around her and do so much with her own life. I, of course, had a huge lump in my throat when her and her true love Luis could not be together. Really makes you reflect on your own life and realize how much more you could be doing with it.
