Dry-Eyed movie about a woman coping with her sisters disability
1 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie depicts all of the difficulties of having an autistic person in your family. Rosie O'Donnell does a fantastic job, without overdoing it, and without making fun of people with that disability. Andie McDowell plays her part with very much love and understanding, yet she is able to touch on all of the underlying emotions someone in her position would face.

This movie is definitely worth watching if you are looking for a feel good movie. Since it is on television, it isn't wasting your money if you don't like it. Although the film is directed more toward women, I enjoyed it(I am a male) and I suggest it to many people.
