A heart wrenching true to life story!
8 January 2011 | by j-dye08See all my reviews

I'm sorry to say I'm on the fence with this one but only because it was my life 30 year's ago. Bittersweet. I love the movie but cried uncontrollably throughout.Till this day I still do especially this time of year, January 16, 1981 to be exact was the day that changed my life as I knew it. So emotional!! I recommend it highly if you know someone that has or is living this just to get a better understanding of what they are experiencing.I felt so much alone at the time and still do and this movie would be so helpful to family & friend's alike to help there loved one's through a difficult time.I would give anything if this was to air again on t.v.I would go as far as to turn it into a family affair!
