One to watch, that's for sure.

I got a VCR tape of this movie yesterday and think it is excellent. It must be set in Canada, because I don't think you can just pick up companions for your crippled children in the US, even if you are rich. It's a good story about never giving up your dreams, although I wish there had been more mentioned about Pasqual's family, such as it was. In explaining her unusual name, she says her Grandmother named her that because she was born around Easter, like that's an explanation. I assume she was living with her Grandmother, because her father is in and out of jail. I'm not sure what's going on with her mother. It's definitely worthwhile to rent for a weekend! I was also pleased to see that Duncan Regehr played the rich father -- I only know him from THE NEW ADVENTURES OF ZORRO, a weekly show that was on The Family Channel in the early 1990's.
