"Molly' is a wonderful film!! Elisabeth Shue turns in a memorable and poignant performance as an autistic woman. This movie explores the whole spectrum of wonder, excitement, pain and triumph! I've seen "Benny & Joon' and this film is truly another delight.
Elisabeth Shue is wonderful as Molly. This is a perfect movie that showcases Elisabeth's full range of acting talent.
