A Touching Story...
16 May 2000 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on ABC a couple of months ago. It was a touching story about the true life of Loretta Claiborne(Kimberly Elise), a mentally retarded woman. It tells about her life through anger, happiness, and reaching her dreams. She was introduced to what she loved, Track and Field, from Janet McFarland(Camryn Manheim). She starts to win track meets and everything seems fine. But There are still many problems she faces as she goes on through life... Camryn Manheim Acted Well in this Drama. But Kimberly Elise Gave A SUPERB acting role as Claiborne. A Great Movie. Great For the Family with many great messages kids can learn from. I'm a guy and I rarely cry, but this movie made me cry. Grade : B+ or 8/10
