Beautiful Movie
24 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this on LMN, and have to say, this is the movie that got me hooked on the channel. I actually have relatives who suffered a kidnapping in the family, so the plot really struck a chord with me. The acting is unbelievably good, except for the little boy, who seemed a little wooden. Perhaps this was his first movie, but the kid hired to play him was more convincing than he was. Actually, this movie's main plot was fairly straightforward, but the subplot of the mother and her husband married for looks was what had me bawling. There are so many ugly little truths to the story, poignant, but resolved before the end. This movie is a must see, if you can catch it!
