Moving (very), sad (very), and memorable
15 April 1999 | by andrewj-3See all my reviews

I paid almost a hundred bucks for this movie (it was higher-priced because they didn't expect it to sell well) after missing the end on network television. I figure, having watched it about 20 times, I got my money's worth. I recommend it to any fellow "sadness junkies". In other words, if you love "Brian's Song" and "Terms of Endearment," you'll love this one, too.
