Dolly pulls off a complicated character beautifully.
2 June 2006 | by kharabear97See all my reviews

I just saw this movie and thought it was great! I really liked the chemistry between Dolly and Billy Dean. I believe it was the best work Dolly has done to date. Kudos to her for stepping out of her comfort zone in comedy to do something a little more dramatic. The character of Leeana is really complicated because of her history, and Dolly pulled it off beautifully. In fact, each of the characters in the movie were well played by the actors chosen to play them. I couldn't believe that this was a made for T.V. movie. It was really well done in all aspects the location, costumes, writing and directing. I liked that the script gave just enough information when it was needed, so the audience was able to go on the healing journey with Leeana and live her "aha" moments with her. I love movies that inspire and empower, and this one does both.
