A Message From Holly is a movie about personal victory, it tests and shows the depth of friendship. I don't know if I'd be able to take on my friend's kid and raise and love them as my own. But friendship has heights unknown to love and life itself.
Lindsay Wagner is rivetting as the mother with cancer entrusting kooky but high powered career girl and best friend Shelley Long with her only child. It's good to see Long take time off work and bond with the child, getting into scrapes and both of them watch Holly fade to a shadow of herself. Holly makes her friend vow to raise her daughter strong and true to herself and not to allow her family impose their judgement or themselves on her.
The climax is when both friends are in a field watching a beautiful sunset and Long recites the words at the beginning of this review in a most poignant farewell to her friend and sister of a lifetime.
I didn't cry but my heart bled and still bleeds when ever I remember this small but touching picture.
