A movie every one should see
18 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I think this is one of those movies everyone should see. The emotions run the spectrum. Alfre Woodard was as outstanding as the lead character. No one could have played it better. It shows so many things about life you have to see to understand. It shows things like how people can get hung up on thinking about racism or discrimination they don't see the love that those close to them are pouring out. It also shows how we can make judgements which knowing and still have the ablitly to change. Watch this movie and learn.
