Emotionally moving
25 July 2000 | by (Devon, England) – See all my reviews

First off, I must confess that I haven't actually seen this film for about 7 or 8 years, but I remember being really moved by it. This film is one of those that you feel really deeply for the characters, and when the clincher comes, it is as though it is actually happening in your life and the emotion you feel is just overwhelming. A really gripping film. If you like your "true stories" (trying not to sound morbid), this is for you.
