A Heartwrenching Tearjerker
24 December 2002 | by (Delaware, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an incredible movie, and the fact that it's a true story will blow you away. Jamie Lee Curtis gives yet another stellar performance, but this time in a motherly role. The casting directors chose the cutest kids for this film! This is a heartwrenching, tearjerking, wonderful movie that you truly have to see to believe.
