Storyline

The movie spotlights an intelligent high school senior and National Merit Scholar (Bryant) who has never been part of the "in crowd." She teaches a high school equivalency night class, tends to the needs of her widower father, Jesse (Forster), and pretty much stays to herself. But when she meets a loner who recently moved to the town of Due East, she feels a sense of belonging for the first time in her life. Written by Anonymous

quite good for a Lifetime-type movie
28 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Of all the movies I have seen on the Lifetime channel, this is one of the best. It has a great cast, a lot of recognizable names like Kate Capshaw and Cybill Shepard, and it has a good storyline that never drags. There are a lot of characters, so the movie doesn't just focus on Mary Faith's pregnancy. It shows her friend's situation with her ex-husband and the changes she goes through over the course of the movie. Then there is the relationship her father has with his girlfriend and the grieving parents of the father of her child. Even though it is a little unrealistic that the southern community she lives in would be so understanding and supportive of the choices she makes, the rest of the movie is very realistic - in what the girl goes through and in dialogue. Also, I love the message of this movie. It's not all preachy and doesn't make Mary Faith look like a slut or a typical "unwed mother". I would recommend this movie to anyone who would like to see an above average Lifetime-esque movie.
