A woman who is addicted, loses her daughter, dang, thiis a hard plot
28 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the simplicity of this movie. A war vet with post traumatic disorder and a young, abused girl, with a mother who had drug problems. It was a heart and tear movie.

I loved how the two main characters blended together. I know nothing of the actors. The only thing I would have liked to see different, as addiction still is so misunderstood, is if her "mom" was in treatment and getting better. I, myself, am an recovering alcoholic. I have never burned a child or hurt another human being. But, being in the AA program, I understand what substance abuse does to someone and those who love them.

I did not like that her "mom" was getting help, but I was a little girl like her, a "little adult," just as she was, so I totally understood how adult she was at a very young age.

This is a lovely movie,for so many reasons. Two folks coming together from different ages and different experiences, sharing and learning together. That's what we do in AA, I wish the whole world would take notice and could work together the same way.

Enuf said.Loved the movie and recommend...it leads you to a judgment must less. Just don't judge.

By the way, this is my first review ever. For whatever that means.

Take care, and look at others in a different light. They might be just like you or agree with whatever you do in your lives. Not one of us is perfect. Give yourself and others a break.

Thanks, Cathy PS - you don't have to be a Christian to understand this movie. Ask me why. It's a bit explanation.
