A moving true drama
15 June 1999 | by (LA, California) – See all my reviews

I just saw the screening of this movie at the Directors Guild here in LA. It is such a moving story, that needed to be told. Christine Lahti was nothing less than brilliant. I highly suggest catching this movie, whenever the opportunity presents itself.
