Storyline

Wealthy Gregg and his wife, English teacher Julie, were happy parents until their little boy Robby was stolen while she took a bath. Their lives have taken off again, but they keep hoping and feeling guilty. Fifteen years later, when Julie is pregnant again, the high school principal appeals to her educational idealism to take under her wing Jesse, a boy who is gifted as a mechanic and artist, but can barely be convinced to keep in school by his single devoted and devout mother Esperanza, who is sick and such a bad provider he has to steal. They alternate between getting on and clashing; Jesse even breaks in to steal a ring from Julie for his girlfriend Nilda. the finding of a Saint Blaise pendant in Robby's crib finally puts Julie on the kidnapper's trace- it leads via parish priest Ramirez, who is now in a home for the demented, to a devout Esperanza...

Wow
12 June 2004 | by maximus_joshusSee all my reviews

As far as dramatic movies go, I am just like most other men, but when forced by my newly made wife to watch this movie I found myself balling up in tears at the ending. The movie was well scripted and well acted out. On top of that the drama was neither "cheesy" or forced it allowed you to feel how you would in either or both the parents shoes and the childs shoes and even a little of the woman who stole the babies shoes as well. I was impressed by the movie and enjoyed the little side tracks they had set in the movie. The one thing I had a very many doubts ab out is 1 the unrealistic of the ghetto me being a corrections deputy am more than aware of the runnings and actual behaviors of the ghettos of America. First of all a blonde women dressed nicely does not just walk right through this type of neighborhood without a gun drawn for gods sakes. However,If asked I would recommend the movie and guys, it doesn't hurt to shed a few tears once in a while, women love it.
