Wonderful film about the creation of a new family, 20 March 2000
Author: temo from Arizona

This film was excellent. A Southern Widow gets the call every mother dreads "there's been an accident". Imagine her surprise when moments after she finds out her daughter is gone forever, that she has a grand-daughter. At first Granma is all too ready to hand the child off to anyone else, but a twist of fate gives her some extra time with Jacey. Penny Bae Bridges is excellent in the role of a confused, loving little girl and Gena Rowlands as the conflicted southern gentlewoman...... Louis Gossett Jr. was a wonderful(as always) Grampa, so loving to his Granddaughter and so cold to Georgia. And I just loved Stella Parton!
