After watching FOR HOPE, I wonder more about some of the crap
11 January 2005 | by (Salmon, Idaho) – See all my reviews

I see on the movie screens. How could movie have ignored by the awards people? Absolutely fantastic performances throughout. So believable. So candid. So tragic. Congratulations to Bob Saget. Now I know what he's good at! Dana was magnificent, once again. The next time I see a film coming out that is directed by Saget, I'll give it a shot because this was Grade A. I was turned on to this film by a woman I'm dating. We watched the film and then she informed me that she has this disease. In the ten years since this film was released, some advances have been made and she's confident she will not have to go through what this woman did in the film but you can't be sure. The movie is powerful with a capital P.
