Kellie Martin's best role ever!
23 December 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Such a beautifully acted tearjerker. Kellie is superb in this film. It is the story of a young woman, Kellie, who becomes guardian of her mentally retarded mother. This is a positive, uplifting film about not giving up on people.
