Quotes

Belinda Simpson: [after a townsman tried to burn down the orphanage] I don't understand how someone can believe God wanted them to do such a thing.
Hattie Clarence: If you want to believe something badly enough, you look for justification. What he did had nothing to do with God.

love takes wing, city in movie
20 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I live in Sikeston Mo and this movie said it was filmed in Sikeston Mo. Can anyone give me any information on who came up with the town name? I looked up the writer and she came from Canada. I thought the movie was great and especially was excited when my town and state was mentioned several times in the movie. I cannot seem to find out any information on the internet so I thought I would try this comment section. thanks for any info on this and if you can direct me to a place on the net where i can look this up. several residents in my home town are anxious to find out how this came about. this is the most excitement to happen here.
