Very sad,depressing and beautiful film.
3 January 2003 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film when I saw it yesterday.It's possibly one of the most emotionally heart-wrenching dramas ever made-it actually reminds me a bit fabulous "Requiem for a Dream".The photography is beautiful and the performances by both Britanny Murphy and Karen Allen are simply outstanding.The film is really sad-it actually made me cry a little bit.So if you are ready for emotional roller-coaster check it out.You have been warned!My rating:10 out of 10!
