excellent movie. A must see!!!
7 October 1998 | by (Auburn, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Touching movie about a daughter's love for her mentally slow mother. Excellent performances by Kellie Martin and Mary Steemburgen. Would not be surprising if both actresses went up for awards for their performances.
