Interesting if slow at times., 25 September 2003
Author: wxbee1731 from Nipomo, Ca

Decent acting. Keeps you wondering where the spiritual part of the movie is going- I am still wondering. Sympathy for a beautiful woman cut down in the prime of life. Good character development except for the father whose acting was one dimensional). Gives a kind of better understanding of the effects of MS and how the rest of us take daily living chores for granted. Also the two background college boarders (friends of Edgar)were unconvincing and did not convey any feelings across the screen that I could discern.
