Touching
8 January 2000 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful (true) story about the relationship between a mother and her daughter, and their struggle to make it to the top in the music world. It is about hopes and dreams... about relationships and about growing up. The actors make great performances, and the chemistry between Naomi and Wynonna is extraordinary. One second they love and support each other, the next they can't stand each other. Reminds me so much of my relationship to my own mother. The music is great (even though Naomi is singing in a whisper - you can't hardly hear her!). They story is touching and feels close to real life. Very nice to see actress Ashley Judd ('and he loved them all') play herself as well as narrate the story.

I give it 8/10! An all-time favorite.
