Melanie Clark Pullen
I have to admit that I never expected Lea Thompson to do such an amazing job with this role but she was outstanding! The concept of the movie was seen through the eyes of the old west days and this I am sure was just too good to be true. But..."this is how it should be" in the face of adversity and one human being relies on another. It brings out the maternal instincts to a point of extreme in finding hope for the children in the near future not knowing if or when things will change but knowing that they WILL medically speaking. At first, it was slow but picked up with real emotion and Farrah was excellent in her role as well. She really depicts the true emotion of a "working women" not being kissed because that is intimate and special. So the real emotion came shining through when she finally intimately kissed back on the lips. Truly logical and sensible in the way the whole situation was handled yet in today's society I can't think of anyone that would put up with this arrangement! Brought genuine tears to my eyes and the friendship between Lea and Farrah was brought out in real tear jerking mode! I really loved it!
