Great movie, you REALLY care about these people
14 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

I thought the most compelling story was Tyrene's. I wish that more of the movie had focused on her.

Went to the movie in a totally down mood, really feeling sorry for myself. Man, you don't know how rough and unfair life can be until you've heard Tyrene's story. Lord, help me not to complain about my petty problems when there's so much real struggle and hardship in the world.
