Accidental Friendship- By No Accident is Great ****
22 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely wonderful film with a standout performance by Chandra Wilson,as a homeless woman loving dogs. She is befriended a female police officer and the two develop a marvelous relationship.

What makes the film so good is that despite all the adversity that has occurred in her life, the Wilson character, Yvonne, accepts responsibility for her resulting actions.

Ben Vereen briefly appears as a fellow homeless person in the throws of confusion.

The lady police officer, who has recently ended a relationship, learns from Yvonne. She is able to find love with a fellow officer.

The film shows the work of a rehabilitation place working with these homeless women. It will serve as an inspiration to us all.

You will be moved when Yvonne finally goes to the home and a routine physical exam reveals cancer. Devastated by the news, especially when she was making such progress, you will feel great as she overcomes this latest problem in her difficult life.
