I LOVED IT!
21 February 2001 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Oh, my gosh! I can't tell you all how much I loved this movie. At first, it thought it would be boring and monotonous. But, I loved it! All the pain Tess goes through... it's kind of depressing for a while, but then... no, if you haven't seen it yet, I won't ruin it for you! But, this is an absolute must-see.
