An Outstanding Hallmark Production!
30 January 2002 | by (Hannibal, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Is it surprising that Hallmark would put out anything less than excellent? And is it surprising that Kathy Bates would pull off another Oscar-Winning performance?

Kathy Bates stars as a woman diagnosed at age 16 with a schizo-effective disorder. Trying to go about a normal life is difficult for her. Elizabeth Perkins plays her younger sister, trying to lead a normal life but has always felt an obligation towards her sister. On top of this, Perkins' character finds that trying to carry on a romance is very difficult, in light of her sister's needs.

This is definitely a must-see movie! Then again, with Kathy Bates and Hallmark teamed together, how can one go wrong????
