Liza Shines
30 May 2004 | by (San Francisco, California, USA) – See all my reviews

This wonderful and well-written story is highlighted by fine acting and excellent use of the setting, New York City's West Side.

Liza's performance was absolutely brilliant and one is immediately reminded that she is, after all, an academy award winning actress of immense talent. Kathy Bates is also utterly convincing as a homeless woman. Shirley McLaine was an excellent choice for her role. I imagine it must have been difficult to portray a woman whose physical disability gradually worsens during the course of the movie.

When I noticed this movie while flipping through channels, I hadn't planned on doing more than scanning the first few minutes. It pulled me in and I invested 2 hours watching it. Time well spent!
