i thought this movie was an amazing drama. it expressed what it's like to deal with the struggles of everyday life and also other difficult obstacles. this movie was one of the ONLY movies i have ever seen to truly express relationships between sisters. i loved it. i also thought it was creative because it wasn't OVERLY dramatic to the point where you lose touch with the reality of the situation. it just seemed like real sisters, with a real father, living real lives and i love that. i think the cast was amazing and they made some of the situations comical, but they didn't throw it in your face. this movie made me think, it made me cry, and it made me appreciate my sisters. i loved it.
