wow, Really Jane Shepard? Do your research! So first of all as a person living with MS the portrait of this character with MS is a lot of BS. And as someone else stated in another review, in this day and age, someone over 18, this wouldn't happen. Also as a person living with MS and who works in an assisted living property and has worked in such places my entire career, this movie is so much BS. Some other people reviewed how eye opening it was and blah blah blah. Well it's not portraying the reality of a situation. Don't waste your time watching this horrible film. I was curious because of the MS situation but 20 minutes in I turned it off and was totally offended. Ms. Shepard should be ashamed of herself for putting pen to paper with this.
