30 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

True Women is a genuinely great movie. i happened to be flipping through the channels and luckily landed at the beginning. i started watching it and couldnt get up until it was over which was 4 hours later, and i am not one for long movies but i was absorbed. i found this movie intersting for many reasons: the acting was great, the setting was great, the script, was great exc.

i am a big angelina jolie fan and like pretty much all of her movies. now i loved this movie before the character even aged to her part of the role, when it did i was stunned because i had never even heard of this movie before. there were so many really talented actors and famous ones at that and i guess that this movie didnt do very well because i know i would have watched it a lot earlier. and im not even attracted to these kinds of movies, so i guess it is proof that it broke the genre.

i will recommend this movie to anyone. True Women made me cry, laugh, it made me scared and anticipated. it was very entertaining!!
