Winnie 1988 Movie
25 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I Luv this movie Winnie (1988 Movie) I saw it years ago and it makes me laugh, cry, and everything in between Lol! And that was years ago in the 80's when I first seen it. And am here to tell you it still stands the test of time, because I just saw it again tonight someone had down loaded it on you tube and I watched it again and I found myself right back there 20 years ago laughing and crying once again. I wish more people in the world thought like Winnie...then this world would be a much better place too live in because her heart was very big and full of love for her fellow human beings, her and Thomas were a riot together and I do plan to buy the book based on the movie called: Winnie my life in the insititution. The movie was so great and I got so caught up in the story that I hated for it too end, it should have been two more hours long. It help me too also remember what a great actress Meredith Baxter is even still this day! I recommend anyone with a heart to see this movie..you will not be disappointed, Winnie am glad your dream came true!
