This movie was done beautifully. It had me captured.
27 July 1999 | by (California, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This was a beautiful movie. Kirstie Alley was brilliant, as usual. The characters were very much in depth, but clearly defined. It was a touching story about family and life in the "projects." I now have an even bigger respect for Ms. Alley after seeing her performance in "Radiant City", which was extremely strong and had a lot of heart. The story stayed very true to itself. The costumes, hair, and make-up were exquisite, as was the set and dialogue. I give my utmost regards to the writers, producers, director, and actors of this film.
