stellar performances in a stellar movie
28 July 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

this is a very moving and heartwarming made for TV drama.i'm sure many people cringe when they here the words 'made for TV.i think that's too bad,because there are a lot of well made TV dramas.this is certainly one of them.it is as i said heartwarming,but it also has its sad moments.it concerns a mentally challenged woman named Sarah(hence the title)played by Mary Steenburgen.she is in her 40's and has a normal daughter.Sarah can not look after herself,so she is looked after by both her mother Rose(Marion Ross) and also her daughter Mary Beth(Kellie Martin)rose dies and it becomes Mary Beth's responsibility to look after her.she has some help in the form of Lila,Sarah's aunt Lila(Dianne Baker).anyway,the movie details the struggles they have in looking after Sarah.the movie does play on your emotions,but that doesn't matter because it has the goods to back it up back it up.there are few surprises in the movie and a revelation or 2 that you might or might not see coming.the acting is superb on all fronts,but it'Mary Steenburgen who turns in a superb performance as Sarah.she is very believable and credible in the role.Kellie Matin is also very strong as Mary beth.all in all,this is a very well made production.i can't find anything wrong with it."about Sarah" is a definite 10/10
