L. Clairborne
12 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this movie. The movie is so touching. I am 60 years old and had no knowledge of this lady. The story is incredible, so uplifting for all. I am sure that once watching this story, everyone had to receive something. (a lesson).

A heart touching story, and it shows that you can do anything that you want, regardless of your family, siblings or anyone else. I commend her and the people that played her role in the movie.

I cried so much, though it's just another example of determination, will power and faith. Holding on to your Faith, you can accomplish anything that you want and need to do.

This story could help stop some of the bullying also. Thou is a true life story, there are plenty who try to fit in others lives once they have made great accomplishments.

The movie L. Clairborne, could have a positive impact on all children of the 2000's.
