I love this movie!
29 January 2004 | by etienne7See all my reviews

I daresay this is my all time favorite movie. I love it because it describes my relationship with my mother very well. The music is great as well, Mare does an excellent job singing in this movie.

I made sure to let Janis Ian know how much I love the songs from this movie as well, since she wrote all of them. I have the original handwritten lyrics from Up the Marks and a cassette of her and Mare rehearsing "On the way to me" (which is my favorite song from the movie.

So yes, I am a HUGE fan of this movie!
