the best mini-series ever
8 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

What to say about "Switched at Birth?" I've seen this movie at LEAST a half a dozen times, probably more. It doesn't take much to get sucked into this compelling story. All the actors involved did a wonderful job portraying the real-life Twig and Mays families. I don't know what it is about this story that makes it so compelling. I guess it's that what both families go through is so touching and they make it seem as raising the wrong child could just happen to anyone. Great acting by Bonnie Bedelia and a pre-Jurassic Park Ariana R
