Almost perfect drama
29 December 2003 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

This is one stunning drama that never misses a beat.

Gaby, suffering from cerebral palsy, overcomes enormous challenges with the help of a Mexican maid and supportive parents.

But this summary barely does justice to this perfectly directed and acted drama.

The score, by Maurice Jarre, is simply stunning, and the performances (all of them) are spot-on.

I adore this movie and count it as one of my Top Ten of All Time.
