Heart Breaking
5 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I would like to say here that I have no idea what the other reviewer was talking about when she mentioned a supposed "sickeningly happily ever after ending" for Shanae. I saw no such thing. Her story is a tragedy and her mother's story is a tragedy. I was stunned and deeply saddened by what happened. The fact of the matter is, Shanae DOES seem to have turned her life around. Hopefully it will last. She pulled it together enough, despite all her problems, to be a medical assistant. As for Megan, I really felt for her. She did not have the supportive family that Shanae did. Despite Megan's intelligence, talent, and beauty, it seems the world will be a very hard place for her. I was SO GRATEFUL for my family after watching this movie. I would like to add one thing -- the staff at the facilities where these girls lived are SAINTS. I could never do a job like that -- it would be so hard, so depressing -- and yet it is such an important job! Thank god there are people like the staff I saw in this film -- people who care enough to work with these kids and to do their jobs with honor and compassion.
