Must-see Cinderella Story
5 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Rain was a terrific movie. Some people may not have liked it because they wished it stayed completely true to the book, but no book-based movies do, so don't judge this one on that. I thought with a very low-budget, the director and crew did a fantastic job. They worked with what they had. Faye Dunaway, Khandi Alexander, and Robert Loggia gave fantastic performances. The white mother of Rain was lacking as well as Rain's friend and boyfriend, but their parts did not mean as much to the movie as did the others so it was okay. Rain's black family was spectacular, and surprisingly Roy and Benny are actually first time actors! Brooklyn did give a good performance and is a great singer! I felt this was a very cute movie. I enjoyed the relationship growth between Dunaway's character and Rain!

I also thought the director did an awesome job!

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this movie!
