Dearie B.: Troy Watts! Bring your narrow a** outta there!
Troy Watts: [Comes out chuckling] I ain't nothing to say to you.

Heart warming, Well thought out, Eye catching, tear jerking
14 September 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie moved me in such a way, because the characters came right off the screen and into my heart and home. Alfre and Loretta were the best actors making the script come to life with heart pounding, tear jerking, togetherness that sisters share. Only one could dream of a sister to sister relationship such as this. As I watched, I could not miss a part fearful of something juicy happening and me not seeing it. I wished that my sister and I had shared a bond like that one. My sister went though some of the things Darie B went through and to this day many other girls are still going through it. The question is how many of our realatives stand up to the person who has inflicted harm on the them? I really liked the way this movie portrayed a closeness and the struggle to get through rough times. I have passed the title of this movie on to my friends and family in the hopes that they will see what sticking together really means. I would love to purchase this tape and view it time after time again so if anyone knows where I can get it pleas email me.
