Absolutely Amazimg
6 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will literally never be the same after watching this movie. I have yet to come across one so powerful and emotional. I am still in tears. Not to mention my two absolute favorite actresses star in it and they did a wonderful job.

Jennifer Morrison and A.J Cook deserve some kind of award for their outstanding acting in this film. Their emotions were so raw and powerful I felt myself actually feeling what the characters felt. And when you can laugh, cry and get angry right along with the characters you know it's an amazing movie. I highly recommend this movie. It will definitely change you in some way.
