A woefully overlooked spectacular drama.
23 March 2003 | by (Larkspur, California) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie which was released in the same era as "My Left Foot". I consider "Gaby: A True Story" an equal in quality to that movie, and I hope that it will some day receive the attention it deserves. The performance by the female lead is as haunting as the story itself.
