Tearjerker
10 May 2007 | by (Bournemouth) – See all my reviews

This film made me cry when the mother is losing her family. in fact its the only film i can think of that made me cry. Its one of those films that has such touching moments that it remains one of the unforgettable films of the 90s. I think the sympathy here is in the fact she totally has her heart in the right place but the bureaucratic machinery cannot see that. Its one of the very few films which truly shows what it means to be a decent parent. Too many American films show upwardly mobile professionals as parents with very few real problems. Sherrybaby is another film of a low achiever but the lead in that film loses sympathy points due to her promiscuity and drug habit. Rent this film if you want a good cry....best watched alone!
