One of the Best Films I've Seen in a Very Long Time
30 April 2005 | by (Cereal City, MI) – See all my reviews

As usual, Kathy Bates is outstanding in her performance.

There aren't many movies that get to me emotionally, but this one sure did. I found myself identifying with more than one character: As a single mother, it wasn't hard at all to relate to Frances' struggles. As a former willful but loving teenager, I sympathized a lot with Shane, too.

I felt myself sharing the family's joys, struggles and disappointments, and learned a few things along the way. Sometimes it's true that pride goeth before a fall.

A very believable plot and great acting throughout, this is a must-see movie.
