Just super
11 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brilliantly written and what a cast of actors! When I saw the length of this, I thought I would never be able to stay awake to watch it in its entirety, but that was no problem. Instead, I found that I didn't want it to end!

Sally Field, once again, is a gem. Such talent in that little gal. It seems that she just gets better and better. Also, no matter how old they attempt to make her look, she just doesn't look old!

I related so much to her character, trying to stay in her daughter's life, feeling useless as she realized she was getting older, watching those around her die. It was very moving. Wish there was a "Sam" in my life.
