Magnificent!!!
20 September 1999 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful and heartfelt film! The actors are all incredible, and the whole movie is magically spellbinding! The movie is so dramatic, you can feel the anguish if Mrs. Dionne and the whole family. Me and my mom watched it and we loved it!!! A beautifully done movie!
