touching story
30 April 2002 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when it aired on a PBS station in Buffalo, NY. I know that I watched the tape over and over so at the time, and even now, it's a touching film. It is a story of a young woman who is trapped into chosing a "perfect mate". Her mother, of course, has her own ideas, different from her daughters. I am anxiously awaiting it's return to tv! I've got to tape it again. :-)
