universal theme of a mothers eternal love
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is extremely well done in a very subtle way but does get to the basic universal human truth of the love a mother has for her child forever.

It addresses the social mores that put young mothers in hopeless situations forcing them into outcomes that they never could have imagined could have happened to them at the beginning of a relationship.

This movie not only exposes the evils of the the billions of dollars spent in the world dealing in the shameful lucrative transfer of babies for adoption... but also exposes the painful scars both mother and her lost baby carry for life...in this case the lifelong effects show in a surprisingly subtle twist in the life story of one of the main characters.

Stolen Life gets a message across that needs to be told...exposed to the light of truth.
