Leslie Morgan: You're going to the dance?
Anna Morgan: Didn't Dad tell you not to make a big deal about this?
Leslie Morgan: Yes, but you know I don't listen to him.
Anna Morgan: Well, maybe you should try it sometime.
Leslie Morgan: maybe when we're old. So, you're going. You sure this is a good idea? I mean, you should do this kind of thing eventually, but maybe this is pushing things a little too fast. I don't know. What do you think?
Anna Morgan: I think that I'm going to the dance. It's not that big of a deal.

Surprisingly good movie for PAX Network.
20 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

There is so much going on in this movie, it would be hard to capsulize everything, so I won't even try.

Lindsay Felton does an outstanding job as the newly paralyzed Anna Morgan, and as the movie's narrator. She comes across as a real person, with hopes, fears and frustrations like everyone else. The film spends time introducing her family, and, quietly, subtly and intelligently showing us a bit about each person, in a realistic way.

Perhaps my only quibble about this movie would be, Anna is described as a champion gymnast before her injury. Having seen what sylphs most female champions are, it's hard to believe someone as abundantly endowed as Anna...OK, stopping now.

It's an excellent little slice-of-life movie, with a fairly realistic portrayal of dealing with paraplegia (eg, the constant shifting of weight in the wheelchair, to avoid pressure sores and circulation problems). Perhaps the movie's strength is, the wheelchair is only part of the story. The family is the main story.

OK, if that's not clear, just watch it for yourself. It's not syrupy or Disneyfied, just honest, gentle storytelling.
