If there was ever a movie about my life...
7 January 2000 | by steve_m8888See all my reviews

I don't know, for some reason this movie just really hit home for me. Maybe that's why I liked it so much, but I was also very impressed with the acting and the directing. It is only tragic that Dana Plato had to pass on before she could contiue in this marvelous genre. I would also have to say it is my favorite of Michael Paul Girard's films of the 1990's.
