Mollie: I got it Alice. It's okay. Get started on that damn geometry so you're not up all hours of the night. Go on. Maybe I'll get Sherman to help out with something.
Sherman: Maybe.

They should bring this miniseries back again...
7 September 2001 | by (Anchorage) – See all my reviews

I'm still not even sure who Irene Bedard is...is she the one who plays the mother...or the sister? Anyway...

This film made me cry so hard in the end...and so many times. The part where the girl talks to the 'basket lady' and gets angry..this seems a lot more realistic than other films (especially TV films) that seem to paint their own pictures of 'the model natives', steering clear of reality to keep the mood comfortable. Well, all I can say is, reality is a lot more interesting in this case.

If you have a chance to see this, do so...and bring some tissues.

PS- The only problem I had with the plot is why the mother was still so set on staying at Grand Avenue...maybe it's a 'metaphorical' thing?
