moving, entertaining, funny and wonderful. Go see it!
11 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie!! (and it seemed that the rest of the audience did too from their reactions). Here they took a serious subject, - one that is certainly timely, currently facing much publicity and discussion; - a great problem for many, emotionally, politically, legally and more - a hot button issue and in the news at this time, - and they presented it with clarity, and in a very entertaining way. I was moved deeply by this movie, but also very entertained and laughed out loud many times. Both the story and acting were excellent - a little over the top at times, but it fit well. For many people this subject is a little over the top. This movie teaches, without our realizing we are being shown or taught, about strength of character, compassion, understanding, tolerance and love. The lead actress, who played Tru, was outstanding. She was so natural. It felt real. I highly recommend this movie; especially for young people. They will love it, and unknowingly grow as a person from it as well
