Clover- TV movie
19 July 2008 | by praisegirll11See all my reviews

Saw this movie in 1997 and again two nights ago and find it still a timely piece. Glad to know Miss Harris has graduated college as this addition will enhance her career. I have always been a fan of Devine, Hudson and Canada and happy to see they are still displaying their talent ( although seemingly only on TV). A previous comment said Mr. Cosby missed a great opportunity in not using Miss Harris in more episodes of his show. Perhaps, but where are his child stars today. Mr. Cosby's loss, Miss Harris' gain. We need more films of this caliber, both in story and cast. Young people, and adults also, need to see more positive films of this nature. Recognizing that life is not easy and throws many curves, yet with strong character and love, goals can be attained. Much success to all.
