Great Movie!!
29 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'A promise to Carolyn' was about 2 sisters that are trying to convict their stepmother of their baby sister's murder 37 years ago. All the memory's start again when one of the sisters gets a angel from the other sister on Chirstmas, which was the death of their sister Carolyn. As they show flashbacks and other memories of their childhood you could see it was troubled, through this movie they are trying to put their step-mother in jail on a count of murder.Its a very suspenseful movie and I think that audiences of all ages would like it for there is mystery,drama and more in this movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes mystery and drama. The casting was great as well as the plot.
