I am one of Elisabeth Shue's most dedicated fans. I recently wrote her a letter in the mail regarding her choice of roles she selects. The past few movies she has had some bad scripts, but she made a nice come back in Amy & Isabelle. She was also pregnant in this film with her second child, but it dosent show that much. Also, this movie scored huge with the ratings, 19.4 million Americans tuned in to see Amy & Isabelle. Good job Elisabeth, and I love the part when she chopped off her daughters hair.
