awesome movie
10 February 2003 | by (erie, illinois) – See all my reviews

this is one of the best movies that i have ever seen. it is a true story about two women who try to maintain a friendship despite the racism that is going on even in their own families. Hamilton stars as the white woman who is befriending the black family.
