Looking For This Movie to Buy
27 August 2003 | by rfranks2See all my reviews

My sister and I saw this movie years ago and LOVED it! We enjoy a before-and-after story, and this movie depicts this theme beautifully. It covers the horror of a car crash, the heartbreak of being divorced for shallow reasons, the medical community at its best, and a love story with a happy ending.

I want to own this movie.
