Holiday Heart
5 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came across this movie last night, I have to say that the movie was excellent. The acting was awesome, the story line was incredible. Two thumbs up for everyone, a job well done. I have 27 years of sobriety and I understand the progression of the addictive disease. Ving Rhames, you played an awesome role, I felt your compassion. Great job. Alfre Woodard, what can I say, you are an incredible actress. Your performance was amazing. I was captivated with your performance and was aww with how you portrayed a drug addict. Jesika Reynolds, as a young actress at that time you were amazing in dealing with a mother of a drug addict. Beautiful performance. This is truly a must see movie on anyone's list.
